Description

A Washington Post Book World Rave

In School of Dreams, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Edward Humes chronicles the year he spent in a remarkable public high school where students struggle to harmonize parents' expectations with their own goals and teachers search for that elusive balance between creating great test takers and fostering great learners. Humes gives us an inside look at the daily joys, disasters, stress, and struggles of the memorable students of Whitney High, as well as those of their teachers and parents. The result is an honest and enlightening story of what life is really like for today's high-achieving high-school students-and a revealing look at the state of public education in America.

"Engrossing . . . Deserves credit for showing that a fine public school education isn't necessarily an oxymoron." -The Boston Globe


Edward Humes has written numerous books, including Baby E.R. and the bestselling Mississippi Mud, Mean Justice, and No Matter How Loud I Shout, which won the PEN Center award for nonfiction. He lives in Southern California.
