Chenoweth K. "It's Being Done": Academic Success In Unexpected Schools. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard Education Press; 2007.

"Can a good school enable disadvantaged children to catch up? Some say, No, we must change society first. This scrupulous and humane book shows that a good school can make a decisive difference in giving every child a chance to achieve the American Dream. Karin Chenoweth is to be warmly thanked for showing in detail how some schools and their devoted staffs have refuted the idea that demography is fate." --E. D. Hirsch, Jr., Professor Emeritus, University of Virginia
