"This book is invaluable for its identification of the fact that we require fundamental change in school sorting practices..." Ellen Weber, Journal of Educational Thought "The book offers eloquent theory...Constructing School Success remains an important book for those interested in school reform and social stratification literatures...The book is eloquent, and raises some provocative and important theoretical points. Educators, researchers, and graduate students interested in schools' potential to generate social and cultural capital, to modify structural constraints, and to facilitate the type of social agency that can propel disadvantaged youth to success should read this book." Stephen B. Plank and Nancy L. Karweit, Contemporary Sociology
