As some of you who helped me know, I was during the fall working on an article about the benefits -- and difficulties -- of community involvement, based on Chicago's Renaissance 2010 experience. It finally came out a few days ago in HeadFirst, a school reform magazine published in Colorado.
"There's a myth popular in some quarters that community involvement is a silver bullet for creating new schools," begins the article (
The Do's and Don'ts of Community Involvement An Overdue Awakening). "In reality, it doesn't always work that way."
The magazine (which includes a number of articles on the same topic) can be read here. Take a look, tell me what you think.
