What Does It Really Take...

What does it REALLY take to transform a school? Perhaps the best way to answer that question is to ask people who actually did it in some of America's toughest school districts. Public Agenda's new research report offers some helpful answers, as does this essay on the importance of paternalism in schools.

While we're at it, see this book about one man's effort to transform the lives of Harlem youth, and the review here. (What are the implications for school-community cooperation in Jewish schools?)
