A new WestEd book details the turnaround approaches that are preparing more students for college — disadvantaged students who wouldn’t get there otherwise.

Full of concrete examples, transferable techniques, and insider advice that only experience brings, Horowitz offers real-life solutions to the common problems plaguing high schools across the country.
