What motivates students to learn, work hard, and persevere through life's toughest challenges? Why is it so difficult for the world's wealthiest and most powerful country to build good schools in every neighborhood? In Mission High, Mother Jones reporter Kristina Rizga tells the behind-the-scenes story of a public high school in San Francisco struggling to close its achievement gap. She follows four teachers and their remarkable students as they struggle against closure, resist pressure to focus on test scores, and create some of the most effective classrooms in the country. The unforgettable stories in these pages offer a hopeful lesson for improving all American schools.
