Book Talk: Tackling the Achievement Gap through New School Development

Edited by Professors Rhona S. Weinstein (Psychology) and Frank C. Worrell (Graduate School of Education), the book tells the story of a remarkable 10-year collaboration between UC Berkeley and Aspire Public Schools to develop and nurture the California College Preparatory Academy (CAL Prep). Framed by a longitudinal lens, findings from community-engaged scholarship, and a diversity of voices from students to superintendents, it charts the journey from the initial decision to open the school to the high school graduation of its first two classes. Readers are taken inside the workings of the partnership, the development of the school, and the spillover of effects across district and university.
