Description: 

This series of case studies highlights the challenges, creative policy responses, and exemplary practices in California’s legislatively created public alternative high schools. The series is a project of the John W. Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities at Stanford University in support of the California Learning Collaborative on Alternative Education. It is intended to invite a new conversation among educators and policymakers about innovations to better support the success of youth enrolled in public alternative secondary schools across the nation.  The series is funded by generous grants from the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Stuart Foundation.
