Nevada has spent most of its efforts on improving education at bringing up those in the middle and below. But there are also students who are pushing the limits at the top. Those who are more than prepared for college before they arrive. A new book by Chester Finn and Jessica Hockett looks at the way America educates its best high schoolers.
