Title: No Excuses: Lessons from 21 High-Performing, High-Poverty Schools

Author: Samuel Casey Carter

Published: April 2000

Book Summary:

Debates about education and education reform have long been tense, passionate, and even cacophonous. This is particularly true when the question of why education falls short, and dozens of excuses have been made. As persuasive as these excuses and the challenges they reference may sound, Samuel Casey Carter contends these are, by-and-large, simply wrong. He demonstrates this through a lively and thorough investigation of the examples set by high performing, high-poverty schools across the nation, making the organizational, innovative, and philosophical shortfalls of much more advantaged schools shockingly apparent.
