In Raising the Grade, Governor Bob Wise zeroes in on the weakest link in U.S. public education, namely our high schools. As an esteemed education governor and now as CEO of the Alliance for Excellent Education, Wise isn't content to enumerate the flaws in secondary education. He also portrays real-world high schools that work and articulates an action agenda for everyone in a position to make a difference, from educators in the classroom to policymakers in the nation's capitol.

Each year over a million students do not graduate with their peers. This crisis has an effect on our communities in terms of lost income and increased costs for social programs. We do not have the luxury of ignoring this crisis if we expect our students to compete effectively in the global economy.

Written by Bob Wise, former governor of West Virginia and current president of the Alliance for Excellent Education, Raising the Grade describes the alarming cost of our long-time neglect of secondary education. At a time when technology and postsecondary education requirements are rising dramatically in the workforce, the literacy skills of adolescents are not keeping pace. With most federal dollars targeted to elementary schools and higher education, few resources are allocated to improve high schools, to address the achievement gap threatening nearly 6 million students at risk of dropping out in the United States. Raising the Grade is rooted in the stories of real Americans whose high school experiences failed to engage or adequately prepare them for work or college. education,education and reference,education theory,schools and teaching,secondary education,textbooks Education, Jossey-Bass
