Too often, they are handed a diploma that holds an empty promise. This practical field book is filled with effective tools from The Education Trust–West. Diploma Matters helps school leaders and teachers examine the current high school experience and develop a detailed action plan that will transform curriculum and ensure that all students are ready for college and the workplace.

Linda, who was an extraordinary superintendent, proves to be a captivating storyteller."—Peter J. Negroni, senior vice president, College Board "This is a story worth reading, including the specific implications for schools and districts nationwide."—Michael W. Kirst, emeritus professor of Education and Business Administration, Stanford University; president, California State Board of Education; author, Political Dynamics Of American Education "This book is a definitive 'how to' for effective, meaningful, and lasting school reform." —Kathy Burkhard, former president, San Jose Teachers' Association
