Magnet Schools: Public Schools of Choice in a Changing Education Landscape (Paperback)
Magnet Schools are one of the largest systems of public schools choice in the USA. This comprehensive magnet book delves into the history, research, and day-to-day work of this exciting form of education, and its impact on education today. In magnet schools, children of all races and economic levels learn and work together, integrating basic education with their interests and talents, through theme-based education, e.g., the arts, sciences, engineering, mathematics, social sciences, and unique methods of teaching. With descriptions of these exemplary schools as incubators of innovation, you experience magnet school effectiveness in student achievement. Magnet school successes are listed in the Top 100 High Schools, U.S. DOE's Blue Ribbon Schools, and other noted merit listings. Through voices of successful magnet school alumni, you see how strong integrated magnet schools have positively affected their lives. This book concludes by looking into the future of magnet schools in school choice.
