Editorial Reviews

Review

In this well-researched, well-written, timely new book, Pappano takes us from the theory of education reform to the practical examples and inspiring, dedicated people on the front lines of making troubled schools work. With detailed case studies and thoughtful analysis, Inside School Turnarounds makes clear what is working and what more needs to be done. This is a must-read for policy makers, education reformers, and anyone committed to the goal of providing all of America s children with the high quality public education they need and deserve. --Alan Khazei, cofounder, City Year and author, Big Citizenship

This courageous book reveals what s really happening in school reform today. It breaks the story of how some dedicated educators are forging bits of success, one student at a time, under incredibly daunting conditions. The author s clear-headed account touches on all the hot buttons in education, from teacher unions to high-stakes testing, without getting snagged on the usual ideological hooks that have stalled our progress. --William Damon, professor of education and director, Center on Adolescence at Stanford University

In this timely and important book, Pappano skillfully captures the complexity of the school-turnaround challenge. Inside School Turnarounds makes it clear that there is no silver bullet, no easy answer, but that there are a set of lessons and promising practices that we should be careful not to ignore. --Jesse Solomon, director, Boston Teacher Residency

From the Back Cover

How can school and district leaders enact rapid, meaningful reforms that truly transform the lives and learning of their students?

Inside School Turnarounds uses on-the-ground reporting and up-to-the-minutes research to uncover new stories, ideas, emerging practices, and honest admissions about what has worked and what hasn’t for schools and districts caught in midstream as they navigate this uncertain journey. In the voices of administrators, teachers, children, and parents, veteran education journalist Laura Pappano captures the joys and frustrations, passions and challenges of those responding to the unprecedented demands being placed on—and embraced by—turnaround schools.

“Once again, Pappano has captured and humanized many of the challenges associated with urban public education. Inside School Turnarounds highlights some of today’s most effective practices in urban education and considers their applicability in the turnaround context. This is the beginning of a very important story.” — Evan Rudall, CEO, Uncommon Schools

Laura Pappano is an award-winning journalist who has been writing about education for more than two decades. The author of The Connection Gap (Rutgers University Press, 2001) and coauthor, with Eileen McDonagh, of Playing With the Boys: Why Separate Is Not Equal in Sports (Oxford University Press, 2008), she is writer-in-residence at the Wellesley Centers for Women.
