From the Back Cover
In vivid profiles of once-embattled schools, Chenoweth highlights how school leaders doggedly and patiently reorganized internal systems to prioritize teaching and learning, resulting in improved outcomes and vibrant cultures “where teachers want to teach and students want to learn.”
“For those concerned with educational inequality, perhaps no question is more important right now than understanding why some schools and districts do much better with vulnerable students than others. This book confirms Karin Chenoweth’s place at the front of that conversation. People who are still not convinced that schools can change lives need to read this book.”
—Charles M. Payne, author, So Much Reform, So Little Change
“In Schools That Succeed, Chenoweth focuses on the structure of schools that connect people, systems, and processes for the purpose of addressing the needs of students, especially those from minority groups and low-income and working families. Educators will find this work enlightening and inspiring.”
—Freeman A. Hrabowski, III, president, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
“More focus, hard work, and intervention programs are not enough to transform a good school into a great school. In Schools That Succeed, Karin Chenoweth describes the qualities of very high performing schools in some of the most unlikely places in the United States. Chenoweth reveals that great schools marshal their collective capacity by building well-designed, sustainable programs that work together as a system.”
—Paul B. Ash, educational consultant, author, and former superintendent of schools in Lexington, Massachusetts
Karin Chenoweth is the writer-in-residence at The Education Trust. She is a long-time education writer and reporter who has written for such publications as the Washington Post, Education Week, and American Educator.
