Summary "When School Policies Backfire focuses on education policies designed to help disadvantaged students that instead had the perverse effect of exacerbating the very problems they were intended to solve. The book features rigorous case studies addressing important areas of education reform, and shows how and why each intervention backfired. It offers a sobering reminder of the responsibility that policy makers and researchers bear for the well-being of our most vulnerable students." -- back cover.
