Author Michael Brick visited the CORE recently to discuss his book, ‘Saving The School.’ Brick, a former writer for the New York Times, takes us inside a turnaround school in Texas sharing his observations and experiences as both a writer and parent. His yearlong adventure at Reagan High illustrates the commitment so many are making in education to turnaround struggling institutions. Principal Anabel Garza fills the pages of ‘Saving The School’ with vigor for change and passion for impressionable youth.
I think you’ll find Michael’s candor refreshingly unique in an education world often in fear of public perception and polls.
“At once an inspiring portrait of a Texas principal’s fight to reform her school and an indictment of the American education system.”
