Against the Odds offers an in-depth look at the Mapleton, Colorado, school district's transformation of two traditional high schools into seven small schools, each enrolling fewer than four hundred students. This even-handed account chronicles both the heartening successes and frequent frustrations of a district-wide embrace of the small school model.

This is my kind of book. Instead of sifting the stats and talking to experts about general trends, the authors have gone deep into one school district and told an exciting story. Jay Mathews, education columnist, Washington Post" Cuban and team get away from the old small versus big debate and into the real transformation puzzles. It s all there struggle, resistance, leadership issues, the muscle foundations, parents, and community engagement. "Against the Odds" is a great resource for the small schools movement. Mike Klonsky, director, The Small Schools Workshop" An incredible account that I wish I had read thirty-five years ago. Deborah Meier, author, "The Power of Their Ideas: Lessons for America from a Small School in Harlem""
