Summary:"The authors illustrate the history of high school reform and develop a case for the necessity of cultural reform by taking an intimate look at one very typical urban high school - Dorchester High School in Boston. Dorchester High faced trends, policies, and challenges similar to those of high schools all over the country, so the lessons learned there should be instructive for urban high schools across America. Gonsalves and Leonard also examine Dorchester High in the context of community partnerships and relationships."--BOOK JACKET.
