This book walks community activists through the rationale for assuming local responsibility for academic performance, outlines steps needed to drive that change, and suggests curricular direction and school policy requirements. It serves as both wake-up and clarion call to the public, to school board members, and to legislators that the quality of our schools is a matter of local choice, and that we have the immediate ability to create internationally competitive public schools.
