Summary Starting Up is a collection of first-person accounts by some of the best-known founders of new schools in America. The authors share how they worked to make their educational aspirations a reality while wrestling with social and economic obstacles, such as the distressed state of the communities in which these schools operated and the constant competition for resources. --from publisher description.
