Summary
In this powerful rejoinder to the prevailing winds of American education policy, Brick examines the do-or-die year at Texas' Reagan High when an unproven principal takes over a failing school. Compelling, character-driven narrative journalism, this work pays tribute to the great American high school
Summary
Documents the efforts of a dedicated principal's year-long race to save a Texas high school from closure in the face of failing standards, teen dropout rates and jaded officials who sought to replace the public school with a charter company system
