In 1985 the federal government funded two 5-year centres to conduct research on effective schools. Student Engagement and Achievement in American Secondary Schools presents the findings of one of these studies, as carried out by the National Center of Effective Secondary Schools located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Editor Fred M. Newmann and the other contributors to this study examine existing research, detail their own findings, and propose concrete strategies for improving students' achievement in secondary schools.
