High School Reform: Innovative Trends
An effort to remake the American high school is sweeping the country. Educators are revamping traditonal big high schools -- which had been the model established in the 1950s and 1960s to prepare baby boomers for the modern workforce. For decades, however, educators have been trying to make these industrial-strength schools smaller and more manageable.
Over the coming year, NPR Education Correspondent Larry Abramson will visit high schools around the country that are trying a new approach.
