If we want children from poor families and communities to succeed in school, then we must pay attention to more than merely what happens in school. With twelve case studies highlighting an array of Integrated Student Support (ISS) strategies from throughout the U.S., Paul Reville shows us that we already know a lot about how to move toward a world in which children have genuine equality of opportunity. Join us to hear about Reville and Elaine Weiss‘ book Broader, Bolder, Better: How Schools and Communities Help Students Overcome the Disadvantages of Poverty (Harvard Education Press, 2019).
