MEDIA REVIEWS
"I find here nothing less than a blueprint for transforming a failing urban school district with abysmal levels of student and adult performance into one of fiscal and academic respectability. No small feat! This compact little volume offers countless aids for systemic reform, from six giant steps to many small forms. There is much to be gleaned from the Compton Story, which will be applicable to others who would turn their districts around." -- Roland S. Barth
"[This] is a valuable book for anyone seriously interested in having more effective schools. This is not a one-shot panacea, but a detailed recipe of what can be done to improve student academic improvement." -- Education News, Spring 2004
