A Call to the Village is a road map for developing collaborative strategies that integrate the knowledge, ideas, expertise, resources, networks, and systems of the nonprofit, private, public, and religious sectors in the transformation of elementary and secondary schools. While most books on school reform focus on micro-issues such as curricula, administration, special needs, standards and accountability, as well as school choice, this book focuses on the building and implementation of strategic partnerships across sectors via cross-sectoral collaboration. Combining successful strategies from the organizational and strategic coherence of the private sector, the spiritual and moral stewardship of the religious sector, the local and social service focuses of the nonprofit sector, and the public sector's mandate to provide equitable public goods, Duhart offers a comprehensive and practical guide for retooling America's public schools.
