What do high-performing, high-poverty schools do differently? Learn the day-to-day realities and the actionable research gleaned from hundreds of these schools--and discover how your school can adopt practices that make a positive difference, too. Is it possible for high-poverty schools to be high achieving? Of course it is! Real schools with students living in poverty do post high levels of student achievement. Learn what these schools do to help students succeed--and how you and your school can adopt the same practices--no matter what socio-economic climate students live in.
