More High School Graduates: How Schools Can Save Students from Dropping Out
Levin, Ben
"More High School Graduates" is a comprehensive guide for school leaders and government policymakers committed to boosting high school graduation rates. Drawing from his knowledge as an education official and professor, author Ben Levin presents a system to turn around secondary schools that is adaptable for local-, district-, and state-level decision making. Offering a road map for improvement, this book's practical and specific recommendations have increased graduation rates across hundreds of high schools. Components include: (1) Keeping track of all students' progress and intervening early to prevent failure; (2) Establishing curriculum and graduation requirements that support increased student success; (3) Improving teaching and learning; (4) Connecting with the community to engage families, local businesses, and other stakeholders in improving graduation rates; and (5) Implementing methods for planning, communicating, and winning support. The stigma of "dropout factories" hangs over school districts and education agencies. This book helps turn any school or district into a success factory producing more graduates and better learning outcomes. [Foreword by Michael Fullan. This book is a joint publication with OPC.]
