First published in 1980 and now considered a classic, " School Power" was the first book to demonstrate the positive effect of applying powerful psychological, social, and institutional forces on the performance of administrators, teachers, parents, and students. It shows how a university, a public school system, and parents worked together to move problem schools to an exceptional level of social and academic achievement. Now, reissued with a new preface and epilogue and a foreword by Marian Wright Edelman, "School Power" describes in detail the way that educators can use the knowledge of social and behavioral science, and education to overcome poor motivation, low self-esteem, discipline problems, and serious learning disabilities
