Join A+ Schools on October 3rd as we spend an evening in conversation with Education Trust’s Writer-in-Residence, Karin Chenoweth and discuss her 2017 book, Schools that Succeed.

Moderated by Dr. Valerie Kinloch, Dean of the School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh, this conversation will explore how principals and educators in neighborhood schools used data, built relationships with students and families, and reorganized the systems in their buildings to help ALL students succeed.

The first 100 individuals in line will receive a complimentary copy of Ms. Chenoweth’s book, Schools that Succeed: How Educators Marshal the Power of Systems for Improvement.

Informed by years of research and on-the-ground reporting, Schools That Succeed is Karin Chenoweth’s most inspiring and compelling book yet—an essential read for educators who seek to break the stubborn connection between academic achievement and socioeconomic status.

Chenoweth draws on her decade-long journey into neighborhood schools where low-income students and students of color are learning at unexpectedly high levels to reveal a key ingredient to their success: in one way or another, their leaders have confronted the traditional ways that schools are organized and adopted new systems, all focused on improvement. In vivid profiles of once-embattled schools, Chenoweth shows how school leaders doggedly and patiently reorganized internal systems in order to prioritize teaching and learning, resulting in improved outcomes that in many cases exceeded statewide averages
