Books: On the Rocketship


Excerpt  |  Praise for the Book


The new Rocketship book arose out of Achievable Dream where the charter group made up one chapter. I first got interested in charter schools while researching the boys book as I followed boys through two charter schools, one in D.C., the other in New York. I was struck by the unique classroom culture I witnessed, something I never observed in traditional schools. For a book, I was looking for a small charter group that wanted to big fast and when I asked around, several people pointed me to Rocketship.
