This a classic professional development video introduces viewers to the Coalition of Essential Schools (CES)'s powerful model of whole-school reform. This model for creating optimal learning environments is based on nine common principles. In the video, the late Dr. Sizer explains the CES model in his own words, and discusses the concept of localism. The video profiles three exemplary CES high schools that bring to life the common principles of the Coalition in their daily practice by creating learning environments that are simple, flexible and humane. Viewers hear directly from students and parents about the ways in which their learning environments are profoundly different from the traditional models that have governed secondary schools through most of the twentieth century.
