High Schools of the Millennium: Report of the Workgroup

Synopsis

The High Schools of the Millennium Report argues for a new vision of high school, one that uses all the resources of the community to create smaller learning environments, to engage youth in their striving for high academic achievement, to support them with adult mentors and role models, and to provide them with opportunities to develop their civic, social, and career skills. Chapters in the report focus on reasons why communities need to reassess their public education systems as well as the tough obstacles in their way. The report outlines a new concept of a learning experience for teens that uses all the resources of the community and helps every student succeed academically.
