Book News Annotation:

As president of the National Urban League, Price (Brookings Institution) implemented community-based strategies to motivate students to succeed in school. In this volume, he explains how educators, parents, and business and civic leaders can use those strategies to spur student achievement in any school, by providing recognition, having parades and fairs to celebrate achievement, rewarding good behavior, supporting literacy, and starting an honor society, for example.
