Other Ways to Win: Creating Alternatives for High School Graduates

by Kenneth C. Gray Edwin L. Herr

In this resource for parents, teachers, and counselors, Gray and Herr (both education, Pennsylvania State U. ) suggest ways that students in the academic middle can position themselves for career success without necessarily completing a four-year college degree and taking on a massive load of debt. They dispel some common myths about the nature of economic opportunity and advocate for the restructuring of the high school program of study in a way that creates multiple pathways to success. The third edition has been updated to reflect current educational and employment data. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
