A groundbreaking chronicle of contentious factions uniting in a notoriously segregated city to end the high school dropout crisis

When Pam Glynn, a no-nonsense daughter of immigrants, became the principal of Hancock High School, the students were disengaged, not headed toward college, and the staff was dispirited, detached, and even mutinous. Yet before long, Glynn and others managed to turn one of the state’s worst performing high schools into one of Chicago’s best.

Make or Break Year weaves together stirring accounts of students and educators from two very different struggling high schools—Tilden and Hancock—with cutting-edge research on the pivotal nature of ninth grade to depict a program-cum-movement: Freshmen On-Track. Initially envisioned as a dropout prevention strategy, it became a revolution—altering how teachers assigned grades, meted out discipline, and provided social, emotional, and academic support to students.

In a book for anyone who cares about education, justice, or the human costs of widening social inequality, Emily Krone, a former education reporter and communications director, narrates a riveting story of real change happening within a faulty system. In the tradition of vivid youth dramas includingThe Prize andThere Are No Children Here,Make or Break Year reveals a holistic approach that is transforming lives and tapping the tremendous potential inside America’s urban high schools.
