When a group of anonymous donors announced in 2005 that they would send every graduate of the Kalamazoo Public Schools to college for free, few within or outside this midsized Michigan community understood the magnitude of the gesture. In the first comprehensive account of the Kalamazoo Promise, Miller-Adams addresses both the potential and challenges inherent in place-based universal scholarship programs and explains why this unprecedented experiment in education-based economic renewal is being emulated by scores of cities and towns around the nation.
"Michelle Miller-Adams captures the truly unique story of the Kalamazoo Promise without losing sight of the universal lessons it offers us. The Power of a Promise is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the future of economic and community development in our country." -- Governor Jennifer M. Granholm, State of Michigan
