Summary
This ambitious collection of essays by prominent educators, scholars, researchers, and reformers rethinks the problem of failure in our schools and describes the various curricular and structural factors that actually create barriers blocking access to an equal and quality education for all students. The authors examine such vital issues as at-risk and marginal students; striving for gender equity; assessment; tracking; school renewal; school and district organization and the role of state government
