Good Schools in Poor Neighborhoods: Defying Demographics, Achieving Success
Clewell, Beatriz Chu; Campbell, Patricia B.; Perlman, Lesley
Urban Institute Press
"Good Schools in Poor Neighborhoods" contrasts highly effective schools serving urban, low-income, minority youth with their more typical, struggling counterparts. Highlighted are two disparate schools: one serving predominately African American students in a large northeastern city and one serving Latino students in a southwestern urban area. Through solid data from original research, as well as lively vignettes and vivid quotes from principals, teachers, parents, and students, a picture of exceptional schools emerges to guide policymakers and practitioners.
