With its revolutionary work-study program and focus on character development, the Cristo Rey model has presented a new vision in school administration and reinvented urban education. In Putting Education to Work, the inspiring Cristo Rey story is told from its humble beginnings in an inner-city Chicago neighborhood to its current network of twenty-eight participating schools and nine thousand students in underserved communities across the nation, boasting an unprecedented 100 percent college acceptance rate. Through stories of hardship and transformation, the effectiveness of the Cristo Rey method is brought to life, embodied by students who can now reimagine their futures, unleash their inner potential, and fulfill their dreams by preparing for success in college and in life.
