Presents an innovative community approach to educational improvement. Community Action for School Reform tells the story of a partnership between Baltimore community activists and a university as they created an organization to improve neighborhood schools. The book examines the challenges they faced, such as persuading community members that they had the necessary knowledge to do something about the schools, starting and sustaining an organization, conducting and using research, engaging the school system, and funding their work. By analyzing the group's experiences, the author describes the challenges any school reform effort must address and shows directions for success.
