Adult Nonfiction LD7501.C284 H865 2003
Summary: A Pulitzer prize-winning journalist spends a year immersed in the high-pressure world of a competitive public high school-where teens chase 4.0 grades point averages, survive on as little as four hours of sleep, and chug lattes like water-and discovers the human story of what it takes to be a top student in America. Humes introduces a cast of passionate students, and touches on topics relevant to parents, teachers, administrators, and politicians, including destruction of equal education in America; standardized testing and cheating by students, parents, schools, and governments; public schools that succeed; and over-testing in our nation's schools.
