"Exam School" Discussion Next Tuesday

On Tuesday, Dec. 3, the PTSA will host an informal discussion of the thought-provoking book Exam Schools: Inside America’s Most Selective High Schools. MLWGS Librarian Wendy DeGroat and Community Relations Officer Hal Waller will lead the discussion of the book in the school library from 4:00 to 5:15pm (prior to the PTSA general meeting at 5:30pm). Refreshments will be provided.

The guiding questions for the discussion will be drawn from the Big Picture portion (Part 1, pages 7-56), the Summing Up section (Part III, pages 169-201), and the profiles of Benjamin Franklin High School (Chapter 9, pages 106-113), a Louisiana school that Waller has visited, and Thomas Jefferson Sci-Tech (Chapter 14, pages 149-158).
