Small Schools--Miracle School: A Child of the Civil Rights Movement
Epstein, Kitty Kelly
Phi Delta Kappan, v85 n10 p773 Jun 2004
Imagine a school that offers its students a safe environment, a rigorous college-prep curriculum, high expectations for student responsibility, and individualized attention. In this article, the author describes such a school, but it is not an elite private school for the wealthy. It is the Street Academy in Oakland, California, which serves a population of primarily low-income, urban, disenfranchised students. (Contains 4 notes.)
