In Up Where We Belong, Gail Thompson asked the students in a low performing school to be candid about their high school experiences. Using this information and relying on data from questionnaires and focus groups, Thompson discovered a huge gap in perception between how teachers and students view their experience of school. The book explores this disparity, and uncovers some of the reasons for students low achievement, apathy, and frustration. Most important, she offers vital lessons for transforming schools especially for underachieving kids and students of color.
