Against the Current by Michael Brosnan

This is the story of struggle and weary triumph-of one schools battle against the alarming drop-out rates that persist in our urban and inner-city schools. Its a book about the Urban Collaborative, an independent public middle school for at-risk teenagers, which takes struggling students out of traditional schools, teaches them how to succeed in an academic environment, and returns them to their original school settings.Against the Currentprovides insights into how the Urban Collaborative operates, including its emphasis on individualized attention, motivating and engaging students, teacher and school participation in school policymaking, and private sector participation through funding and volunteer work. The results have been phenomenal. More that 80 percent of the students-who were previously on track to drop out-have graduated.Anyone concerned about our countrys at-risk student population will find this book inspiring reading.
