Product Details

Praise

‘Imagine a high school where every student knows every teacher and most other students. Where security comes not from metal detectors but from everyone’s knowing who doesn’t belong. Where community replaces bureaucracy and no one is lost in the crowd–because there is no crowd. With his portraits of five small high schools that break the mold, Tom Toch makes an engaging and often provocative case for a less industrial, and more personal, brand of education.’ –Jonathan Rauch, The Brookings Institution, author of Government’s End: Why Washington Stopped Working

‘Toch has written a compelling account of the promise and challenges of smaller more personalized schools. High Schools on a Human Scale is required reading for educators, policymakers, and anyone else seeking to modernize public education to better serve all students.’ –Andrew Rotherham, Director, 21st Century Schools Project, Progressive Policy Institute
