From the Back Cover:

Against the Odds offers an in-depth look at the Mapleton, Colorado, school district’s transformation of two traditional high schools into seven small schools, each enrolling fewer than four hundred students. This even-handed account chronicles both the heartening successes and frequent frustrations of a district-wide embrace of the small school model.

“This is my kind of book. Instead of sifting the stats and talking to experts about general trends, the authors have gone deep into one school district and told an exciting story.” — Jay Mathews, education columnist, Washington Post

“An incredible account that I wish I had read thirty-five years ago.” — Deborah Meier, author, The Power of Their Ideas: Lessons for America from a Small School in Harlem

“Cuban and team get away from the old small versus big debate and into the real transformation puzzles. It’s all there—struggle, resistance, leadership issues, the muscle foundations, parents, and community engagement. Against the Odds is a great resource for the small schools movement.” — Mike Klonsky, director, The Small Schools Workshop
