Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This fascinating history of one school innovation recounts the painstaking labors of those willing to help at-risk youth succeed in our complex society. Harold Wechsler examines the middle college movement by focusing on a quarter-century of growth at the first Middle College. Started in 1974 at LaGuardia Community College in New York, this successful alternative school has since been widely replicated and adapted throughout the country. Anyone interested in the processes of educational reform will find this captivating story and Wechsler's in-depth policy analysis to be essential reading.
