HOW THE OTHER HALF LEARNS Equality, Excellence, and the Battle Over School Choice

by | Read by Robert Pondiscio

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Author/narrator Pondiscio delves into the charter school debates with a complex and largely positive account of the Success Academy in New York City. Pondiscio's raspy voice captures listeners' attention, and his lively delivery makes it clear why this author is the narrator. He brings energy to his prose, and his projection is balanced to fit the many different scenes he describes as he follows students and teachers for months. To discern what Success Academy does well or is hiding, the embedded writer covers research, interviews, and firsthand accounts of the school. Listeners will see what might be a transformative opportunity for many students who don't thrive in public schools. L.E. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
