Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Boston Arts Academy comprises an ethnically and socioeconomically diverse student body, yet 94 percent of its graduates are accepted to college. This remarkable success rate, writes Principal Linda Nathan, is in large part due to asking the right questions and being open to seeking solutions collaboratively with faculty, parents, and the students themselves.

Nathan doesn't claim to have all the answers, but seeks to share her insights on schools that matter, teachers who inspire, and students who achieve.

Synopsis:

Analyzes how the faculty, students, and parents of the Boston Arts Academy have worked together to successfully grapple with such issues as developing a shared vision for the school and identifying and supporting good teachers.

About the Author

Award-winning educator Linda Nathan founded the Boston Arts Academy in 1998. She consults and speaks on educational issues nationally and internationally, and teaches a graduate course at Harvard on building democratic schools. Nathan lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
