By using common sense steps like building stronger relationships between parents and schools as well as developing a clear cut curriculum, large school districts can make great strides in closing achievement gaps. That's what author and educator Heather Zavadsky says in her book, Bringing School Reform to Scale: Five Award-Winning Urban Districts. But can it be that easy?
