NCC Professor Publishes New Book about Small Schools

October 4, 2012 | Publication


Alia Tyner-Mullings, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the New Community College at CUNY, is the co-editor of Critical Small Schools: Beyond Privatization in NYC Urban Educational Reform (Information Age, 2012). The publication features current empirical research about the successes and challenges of the small schools movement and the likely implications for urban public educational policy. While challenging the concept of charter schools as the panacea for educational reform, the authors discuss how specific types of small public schools can help narrow the achievement and opportunities gap and increase graduation and college acceptance rates. In addition to her co-introduction to the book, Dr. Tyner-Mullings’ chapter is “Redefining Success: How CPESS Students Reached The Goals That Mattered.”
