Samenvatting

The average ninth grader beginning school at Downtown College Prep in San Jose, California, reads at a fifth grade level. By senior year, 94% of the graduating class is accepted into college. With a new approach to charter school education, this inner-city school has found success where so many others have failed. Honest and engaging, Jacobs work exposes the school's struggles and triumphs, from preparing students for the SATs in a community where many residents don't speak English to troubled students finding faith in themselves and the mentors around them. This gritty yet hopeful book offers sound advice and inspiration, while at the same time providing a new understanding of what makes a charter school work.
