We would like to acknowledge and thank the many people who offered us insight, encouragement and support throughout the creation of this book: the attendees of our symposium on the student experience of school reform at the 2001 Ethnography in Education conference at the University of Pennsylvania, and our discussant Jean Lave; Anne Haas Dyson; Judith Warren Little; Jabari Mahiri; Pedro Noguera; Barrie Thorne; William Firestone; James Giarelli; Katrina Bulkley; Carrie Lobman; Michelle Fine; Cecilia Martinez; the members of the UC Berkeley-Berkeley High School Diversity Project; our acquisitions editor at Routledge, Hywel Evans; and, most importantly, all of the authors included in the collection.
No less important was the patience and love of our family members, David Wish, Maya Rubin-Wish, and Brian Woodward, who put up with our lengthy phone conversations and extended absences.
Finally, we thank the students and teachers who shared their thoughts so generously with all of the researchers whose work is presented in this collection.
