Schools across the United States and Canada are disrupting the adverse effects of poverty and supporting students in ways that enable them to succeed in school and in life.

In this second edition, Parrett and Budge show you how your school can achieve similar results. Expanding on their original framework’s still-critical concepts of actions and school culture, they incorporate new insights for addressing equity, trauma and social-emotional learning. These fresh perspectives combine with lessons learned from twelve additional high-poverty, high-performing schools to form the updated and enhanced Framework for Collective Action.

Emphasising students’ social, emotional and academic learning as the hub for all action in high-performing, high-poverty schools, the authors describe how educators can work within the expanded framework to address the needs of all students, but particularly those who live in poverty.

Equipped with the framework and a plethora of tools to build collective efficacy (self-assessments, high-leverage questions, action advice and more), school and district leaders – as well as teachers, teacher leaders, instructional coaches and other staff – can close persistent opportunity gaps and reverse longstanding patterns of low achievement.
