"Dryfoos and Maguire's book moves the concept of a full-service community school from the fringes of public education into the mainstream. It inspires the belief that the best schools are full-service community schools and motivates the reader to seek them out." -- Lisa Villarreal, Director
"It is a valuable tool for parents, educators, school officials, and elected officials who are interested in looking at innovative ways to improve learning and achievement for our nation's children." -- Sandra Feldman, President
"The voices of Joy Dryfoos as national policy analyst, and Sue Maguire as school principal bring to life in new ways the vision of how full- service community schools can help students learn and families and communities succeed. This book will be of great value to policymakers and practitioners alike." -- Martin J. Blank, Director for Community Collaboration
