The small-school revolution tends to be discussed primarily by its technical issues, such as changes in the size and structure of school facilities, these authors contend. Less often discussed are the roles that teachers and school administrators must play in making the shift to smaller schools work. Conchas and Rodriguez examine the experiences of Oakland and Boston to demonstrate the impact that school staff and students have on the shift from large to small educational settings. (800) 233-9936,
