William and Kathleen have conducted multiple studies on High-Performing, High-Poverty schools over the past decade. Their research has taken them to urban, suburban, and rural schools and districts across the US and six other nations. These efforts have resulted in two best-selling books, media projects, multiple articles and frequent annual sharing of results, data and improvement recommendations to educators that seek to better serve their under-achieving students who live in poverty.
