Low math and science achievement in large, diverse, urban high schools, particularly for African American and Latino/a students from low income families, is a serious concern and creates significant leadership issues for urban school leaders who want to lead for learning. This study examined the significant success that four large, diverse, urban high schools had in raising the achievement level of African American and Latino/a students in math and science.
