Improbable scholars: the rebirth of a great American school system and a strategy for America's schools. [David L Kirp] -- "Reveals a sensible way to rebuild public education and close the achievement gap for all students. Indeed, this is already happening in a most unlikely place: Union City, New Jersey, a poor, crowded.

    Improbable Scholars shows that there's a sensible way to rebuild public education and close the achievement gap for all students. Miracles aren't required-instead, we need to make smart use of what we already know can work. But “extraordinary feats can be accomplished in a deceptively ordinary school district such as Union City, New Jersey” (p. ). The journey from ABCs to BA is a long one, but in documenting the success of the Union City school system, Improbable Scholars conveys a message of hope.
