No topic worries American families more than the quality of our schools. MAKING SCHOOLS WORK with Hedrick Smith offers a rare and often surprising look at success in unexpected places, with enormous implications for public schools nationwide.
This web site follows our production team into classrooms from coast to coast to see how some American communities are creating a small revolution in our schools. Don't expect one magic formula. You'll see different strategies. The common denominator is results lifting scores and closing achievement gaps, not just for a few hundred children but for nearly two million, from our inner cities to rural America.
