High School Career Academies: A Pathway to Education Reform in Urban School Districts?
Maxwell and Rubin examine the capacity of career academies to address academic reform in terms of increased education and workplace skills. They accomplish this on two levels.

Their findings will help educators and policymakers better understand the strengths and limitations of this method of reform.
