              In a book that recalls My So-Called Life and Diane Ravitch, A School of Our Own tells the remarkable story of the Independent Project, the first student-run high school in America. Founder Sam Levin, a high school junior who had already achieved international fame for creating Pr...oject Sprout the first farm-to-school lunch program in the United States was frustrated with his own education, and saw disaffection among his peers. In response, he lobbied for and then created a new school based on a few simple ideas about what kids need from their high school experience. He succeeded beyond anyone s wildest expectations and went on to be featured in Newsweek, NPR, the Washington Post, and other national media. Now in its seventh year, the Independent Project serves as national model for inspiring student engagement. In creating his school, Sam collaborated with Susan Engel, the noted developmental psychologist, educator, and author and Sam s mother. A School of Our Own is Sam and Susan s account of their life-changing year in education, a book that combines poignant stories, reflections on educational theory and practice, and practical, how-to advice for how to build new, more engaging educational environments for our children.
