Description: Praise for Raising the Grade "In Raising the Grade, Governor Bob Wise zeroes in on the weakest link in U.S. public education, namely our high schools. As an esteemed education governor and now as CEO of the Alliance for Excellent Education, Wise isn't content to enumerate the flaws in secondary education. He also portrays real-world high schools that work and articulates an action agenda for everyone in a position to make a difference, from educators in the classroom to policymakers in the nation's capitol. As a recipe for thoughtful high school reform, Raising the Grade rates an A in my book." -Hugh Price, Senior Fellow Economic Studies, Brookings Institution "Our country is facing a dropout crisis. Each year over a million students do not graduate with their peers. This crisis has an effect on our communities in terms of lost income and increased costs for social programs. We do not have the luxury of ignoring this crisis if we expect our students to compete effectively in the global economy. Governor Wise has been a critical leader on identifying the problem and solutions to the dropout crisis and his insightful analysis should be a must-read for all who care about the future of our nation." -Robert "Bobby" Scott, U.S. Congressman (D-VA) "In Raising the Grade, Governor Wise uses his extensive experience in education to make a compelling case for the transformation of America's high schools. The prosperity of every state-and our nation-demands a response to the issues that are so candidly described in this book. In it, the governor lays out an invaluable plan for federal action that should be required reading for every elected officeholder across the country." ? -James B. Hunt, Jr., chairman, Institute for Educational Leadership and Policy, andformer governor of North Carolina
