From the Back Cover

Learn how a diverse school district in Texas stared down at the widening gap separating high-performing students from low-performing ones and did something about it.

Describing in detail and in an easy-to-understand way how Brazosport established a continuous improvement plan that led to breathtaking results and nationwide recognition, the book's authors provide practical approaches and inspiration for those who belive all students can-and must-learn.

I first read this book about 10 years ago and there are still so many relevant details in this book for failing schools. When I misplaced my copy I had to get another copy.
