Category: Tags: ,

Product Description

This riveting account of Dennis Littky and how his ideas turned around a troubled rural high school—the first school named to the acclaimed Coalition of Essential Schools—gives you a behind-the-scenes perspective on how principal leadership can accomplish positive change.
Read how Littky’s philosophy of personalized learning—one student at a time—quickly achieved dramatic improvements, including a decrease in dropout rates from 20 percent to 1.5 percent and record numbers of college-bound graduates. And learn how school improvement ideas that now seem commonplace today—such as high expectations, individualized curriculum, positive learning communities, and a focus on student competencies—had to be carefully nurtured among students, established through collaborative teamwork, and fought for in the community.
