What is the price of an education at a top public high school? Whitney High delivers everything we ask of a school: a love of learning, a sense of mission, and SAT scores to die for. But there are unintended consequences to attending the school of our dreams, as author Edward Humes found during his year inside this world of high achievement and high pressure. Students work nearly around the clock, building futures to please parents as much as themselves. Their drug of choice? Caffeine. Their goal? Getting into a top college. Their biggest fear? Not living up to their families' stratospheric expectations. But what these kids have going for them is the extraordinary community within Whitney High-- a school with doors open seven days a week, where teachers love teaching and the students linger long after the school day ends.

Hope High School in Providence, Rhode Island was once a model city school, graduating a wide range of students from different backgrounds. But the tumult of the 1960s and the drug wars of the 70s changed both Providence and Hope. Today, the aging school is primarily Hispanic and African-American, with kids traveling for miles by bus and foot each day. Hope was known for its state championship basketball teams in the 1960s, but its 2012 team is much different. Disobedient, distracted, and overwhelmed by family troubles, with mismatched sneakers and a penchant for profanity and anger, these boys represent Coach Dave Nyblom's dream of a championship, however unlikely that might seem. Nyblom's mostly black players, including several who emigrated to Providence from war-torn Liberia, face gang violence, domestic uncertainty, drug problems, and a host of other issues. But with the unfailing support and guidance of Nyblom and other Hope coaches, their ragtag team gradually pulls together, overcoming every obstacle to find the faith and trust in themselves that Nyblom never stops teaching. A look at a hidden world that just a few hundred yards from Brown University, Bill Reynolds' Hope is the inspiring true story of young men and their mentors pursuing one goal—a championship—but achieving so much more.

The year was 1966, and America was in the throes of upheaval. Inspired by the goals of the Civil Rights Movement, and by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s vision of a world in which children would be judged not by skin color but by 'the content of their character," Augustus Trowbridge and his wife, Marty, dreamed of establishing a school where children of all races and creeds would be educated together. 'Differences must be immediately experienced, treasured, and understood," Trowbridge wrote in the school's inaugural brochure, 'because a school that avoids differences places education outside the context of living." In this unflinching memoir, Trowbridge tells the deeply human story of the first three decades of Manhattan Country School through the experiences of those who lived it, and those who, even now, are helping to shape and interpret the dream. 'For me the days at your school have always been a fountain of encouragement." -Erik H. Erikson 'To the extent that you, your students, parents, and teachers have remained true to that future not yet seen in society, you are bearers of a vision."-Coretta Scott King 'Manhattan Country School represents what American public school was ideally supposed to be but rarely became."-Barbara Walters 'I think of your school as a small part, as one piece, of the beloved community, a community that is free of violence, racism, and hate. Thank you for making a lasting contribution to generations and generations of young people."-John Lewis 'Your school.is totally unique, and therefore offers incredible richness of future information for all of us who are interested in children and their education."-Robert Coles 'Differences among individuals will not, and should not, disappear; rather, they will emerge as assets, hopefully ceasing to be viewed as causes for estrangement."-Gus Trowbridge On the basis of this idea, Manhattan Country School opened its doors in September 1966. Begin With a Dream traces the evolution over three decades of what has been called the nation's first realistically integrated private school. Augustus Trowbridge, its cofounder and visionary, frankly explores the politics of race, class, and gender that, at certain periods, threatened to derail the school's mission. The result is a compelling portrait of a small would-be utopia that holds lessons for us all.

Examines desegregation, school funding, testing, vouchers, bilingual education, multicultural education, and ability grouping. These seem to be separate problems, but much of the contention over them comes down to the same thing: an apparent conflict between policies designed to promote each student's ability to pursue success and those designed to insure the good of all students or the nation as a whole. The authors show how polices to promote individual success too often benefit only those already privileged by race or class. The book also examines issues such as creationism and afrocentrism.
