Editorial Reviews

Review

''These are educators who recognize that although urban public schools are often deeply flawed and dysfunctional, they don't have to be, and they are educators who act on the belief that it is possible to create schools that nurture and support the hopes and aspirations of those they serve.'' --From the Foreword by Pedro Noguera, New York University

''How might we reimagine our schools? This book offers a guide from those who have experienced firsthand the trials and tribulations of trying to create a school from the bottom up. It asks all the right questions, both the practical and the pedagogical. It feels like essential reading as we reconsider how our urban schools should look and function.'' --Alex Kotlowitz, bestselling author of There Are No Children Here and The Other Side of the River
