`Meets "the highest standard of evidence" for comprehensive school reforms that improve student achievement' - View of Educational Research

`This handbook will help enormously to keep alive what James Comer and his colleagues have so carefully crafted over the years' - John I, Goodlad, President, Institute for Educational Inquiry

Schools are the only universally accessible institutions where there are enough adults to provide continuous support for children's growth, development, and success in life. Using the process pioneered by renowned child psychiatrist Dr James P Comer and his colleagues at the Yale School Development Program (SDP), this unique field guide offers school leaders, school staff, and teachers a comprehensive and effective framework for providing curriculum and instruction that help all children grow and develop along the pathways that support success both in school and in life.

Meets "the highest standard of evidence" for comprehensive school reforms that improve student achievement. -- Review of Educational Research, 2003
"This Field Guide to Comer Schools in Action provides exactly what its title offers: guidelines to curricula, instruction, and educational development necessary to implementing the Comer process. . . . This handbook will help enormously to keep alive what James Comer and his colleagues have so carefully crafted over the years." -- John I. Goodlad, President
