This book offers an in-depth look at the Mapleton, Colorado, school district's transformation of two traditional high schools into seven small schools, each enrolling fewer than four hundred students. This even-handed account chronicles both the heartening successes and frequent frustrations of a district-wide embrace of the small school model.--[book cover]

A Call for High School Reform by Gary Lichtenstein( Book )

This report examines high school education in Colorado, noting the high (and underreported) level of student attrition and the achievement of those who remain. Over 40 percent of Colorado's high school students never graduate. About 15 percent of this attrition can be accounted for by published dropout statistics. Actual attrition rates, however, are much higher than reported because many dropouts are counted as transfer students. Among those who remain in school, achievement on CSAPs declines as students progress from elementary through high school. The poor performance of high schools overall disproportionately affects minority students, especially urban minorities. African American and Hispanic 10th graders are twice as likely as white students to score below proficient in reading and 25-50 percent more likely to score below proficient in math. Minority students are more likely to attend high schools rated below average. Little is being done to remedy the situation. Colorado school districts operate in relative isolation from one another, so promising programs are unlikely to be made widely available. The report suggests that Coloradans have the collective capacity to address these issues effectively and calls for the creation of a commission dedicated to examining and re-thinking high school education and promoting reforms tailored to the needs of individual districts.
