Book summary

The third book in the Horace trilogy, Horace's Hope explores Theodore R. Sizer's own hopes for the future of high schools. Sizer, the chairman of the Coalition of Essential Schools, first gained widespread attention in 1984 with Horace's Compromise, a study of the American high school, followed by Horace's School, a fictional account of school reform. In the final installment, Horace presents a progressive approach to education that allows students time and space to explore their subjects. This culmination of a 12-year attempt to establish more progressive schools advances the case for Sizer's vision of a reformed school system. [via]
