Add It Up
Using Research to Improve Education for Low-Income and Minority Students
Written by Anne Lewis
in Collaboration with Sandra Paik
Foreword by Judith Johnson

"Add It Up is a comprehensive, readable guide to proven strategies and policies that help schools succeed with all their students. It is a valuable resource for educators, policymakers, parents and community members who know their young people can meet high standards and want to make sure that they will."

 

Kati Haycock
Director, The Eduation Trust

"The national school reform community overflows with optimism that 'reforms du jour' and quick fixes will result in high achievement for every child. Add It Up dismantles that fantasy. Despite many amazing local success stories, the absence of an accepted set of research-proven reform practices and policies has led to fragmented educational systems and a loss of public faith in the ability of leaders to fix low-performing schools. PRRAC has taken an important step in using rigorous research as a means of rebuilding civic confidence in the ability of school and political leaders to set schools on the path toward high achievement for all."
