Editorial Reviews


Teachers, principals, and anyone else who is serious about closing the achievement gap should read this book. Merseth and her colleagues take you into the classrooms and corridors of five of the best schools in the country and paint a detailed picture of the very specific strategies, beliefs, systems, and cultures that make these schools really work for kids. It is an inspirational and practical how-to guide for school reformers. --Dacia Toll, co-CEO and president, Achievement First

What makes a great school? Kay Merseth and her colleagues have looked inside some of the nation s best public charter schools and unlocked their secrets. Through engrossing case studies and thoughtful scholarship, this book shows how these schools use their freedom to realize the high expectations they hold for all students. This is a book with plenty of lessons learned for charter schools and for other urban public schools as well. --Nelson Smith, president and CEO, National Alliance for Public Charter Schools
