    Hope Against Hope [E–pub/Pdf] This book surprised me with how interesting I found it The thing I liked best was the way the author managed to make all the players seem human on the page even those who I really disagree with in policy like the Sci Academy founder and make their motives understandable without seeming to take sides After reading I'm still not sure where Sarah Carr herself would fall on the many debates the ed world is gripped with and that's a

A beautiful thorough dedicated work of journalism on a subject that is all too often talked about only in generalities and uninformed assumptions Particularly interesting to someone who recently graduate from a public high school that rewrote its charter during my time there I was constantly realizing the background behind new rules and strategies being implemented and also as an incoming student at Tulane University an elite mostly white wealthy university right next to the disintegrating desperate and hurricane devastated schools of New Orleans that Sarah Carr so elouently brings to light The various perspectives are both pathos driven and necessary for the bigger picture of just how complicated and how many factors there are in this struggle for successful education

Hope Against Hope

Hope Against Hope Summary · 104 Sarah Carr ☆ 4 Summary Geraldlynn is a lively astute 14 year old Her family displaced by Hurricane Katrina returns home to find a radically altered public education system Geraldlynn's parents hope their daughter's new school will prepare her for college but the teenager has ideals and ambitions of her ownAidan is a fresh faced Harvard grad drawn to New Orleans by the possibility of bringing change to a floo. The greatest weakness of the current literature addressing educational reform is its level of abstraction How Children Succeed for instance is an excellent primer on emerging theories of what allows children to be successful in school and in life but its personal narratives are necessarily limited and largely devoted to the researchers who are developing these theories Diane Ravitch s The Death and Life of the Great American School System provides a strong macro view of the arc of school reform but cannot dig down into the actual thoughts and perceptions of the low level actors teachers principals parents and students Daniel Koretz s Measuring Up is a thorough and nuanced account of the limitations of standardized testing design but also lacks compelling characters and narratives Across the board the school reform debate has been driven by over arching theories of elite actor motivations and strategies The lives of those who are directly affected by educational reform are reduced down to superficially compelling yet context free anecdotes that can support a main thesisI am very happy to say that Hope Against Hope reverses the prevailing dynamic and focuses on the personal narratives and perceptions of those who must engage with school reform on a day to day basis The trifurcated focus on three different actors within the New Orleans school system a principal with deep roots in the local community a Harvard TFA alum who now teaches in a new charter school and a family with experience in both the older public new system and the new charter regime can hardly be described as innovative yet provides a desperately needed counterweight to the abstract and politically charged accounts of educational elites Carr s emphasis on the thoughts and actions of her primary characters bolstered by a host of supporting players allows her to pull off a subtle but important trick she is able to humanize her characters to the point where the reader can absorb Carr s criticisms of prevailing attitudes while still appreciating the good intentions of different interest groups This is not an accident Carr opens her book with a declared intention to frame the conflict over education reform as one born of personal experiences rather than partisan politics Her criticisms of American education which acknowledge the failures of past educational regimes but are concretely directed at the current magic bullet ideology of charter schools carry weight than other criticisms because they are carefully framed by events at New Orleans schools and the perceptions of the people served by them It s a welcome change of pace from the sweeping and dramatic rhetoric employed elsewhereBut perhaps the greatest revelation in this book is Geraldlynn the young girl who we first encounter as a freshman at a new KIPP high school At one point Carr refers to Geraldlynn as a Greek chorus of one for the events at her school And indeed Geraldlynn proves to be remarkably attuned to the promise and problems associated with her school The experiences of Geraldlynn s family provide some desperately needed insight into the aspirations and burdens of the populations school reform is supposed to benefit Geraldlynn herself is neither a dramatic charter student success story nor an obvious failure which together with her observational skills lends her commentary a uniue form of credibility Of all the education writers I ve encountered only Jonathan Kozol has given ordinary students such a large platform to express their thoughts and feelings yet Carr provides a thorough treatment of Geraldlynn s evolving perceptions and places then within the context of broader changes within New Orleans and across the countryThis book is a laudable effort to fill a massive narrative gap in our national discussion about the future of education While I don t completely buy into Carr s assertion that New Orleans is truly representative of other places throughout the country the same types of problems motivations and forces are certainly at work in other districts Some aspects of school reform such as the campaign against teacher unions cannot be covered effectively in a book like this but Carr has written an excellent and engaging book that works eually well as a supplement to abstract and politicized narratives or as a thoughtful introduction for the general reader

I saw this author speak at a conference and have wanted to read the book for over a year I m glad I finally got around to it This is one of the most balanced books I ve read on the subject of public education reform and charter schools I also appreciated that Carr was honest from the startthis whole fight is really about race We so rarely talk about race when we talk about education and I m so glad Carr wasn t afraid to broach a subject that can be so intimidating I also agreed with a previous reviewer that recommends that Teach For America teachers read this book As a former TFA recruiter I couldn t agree
