Coalition of Essential Schools
Coalition of Essential Schools is a growing network of more than 1,000 schools in 38 states that are implementing community-based school reform centered around rethinking the schools' priorities and redesigning curriculum, assessments, and instruction to be more student centered. The site offers a large library of materials, lists of participating schools, and information on projects and research.

School Choices
School reform is a hot topic. Most people agree that we need to make changes to improve the quality of America's schools, but few can agree on just how to go about it.

Here you'll find articles, book reviews, and other information that examine the pros and cons of this controversial reform method.
