Overloaded and Underprepared. Strategies for Stronger Schools and Healthy, Successful Kids

Praise for Overloaded and Underprepared“Parents, teachers, and administrators are all concerned that America’s kids are stressed out, checked out, or both—but many have no idea where to begin when it comes to solving the problem. That’s why the work of Challenge Success is so urgent. It has created a model for creating change inour schools that is based on research and solid foundational principles like communication, creativity, and compassion. If your community wants to build better schools and a brighter future, this book is the place to start.” —Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind “Challenge Success synthesizes the research on effective school practices and offers concrete tools and strategies that educators and parents can use immediately to make a difference in their communities. By focusing on the day-to-day necessities of a healthy schedule; an engaging, personalized, and rigorous curriculum; and a caring climate, this book is an invaluable resource for school leaders, teachers, parents, and students to help them design learning communities where every student feels a sense of belonging, purpose, and motivation to learn the skills necessary to succeed now and in the future.” —Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University “Finally, a book about education and student well-being that is both research-based and eminently readable. With all the worry about student stress and academic engagement, Pope, Brown and Miles gently remind usthat there is much we already know about how to create better schools and healthier kids. Citing evidence-based ‘best practices’ gleaned from years of work with schools across the country, they show us what is not working, but more importantly, what we need to do to fix things. Filled with practical suggestions and exercises that can be implemented easily, as well as advice on how to approach long-term change, Overloaded and Underprepared is a clear and compelling roadmap for teachers, school administrators and parents who believe that we owe our children a better education.” —Madeline Levine, co-founder Challenge Success; author of The Price of Privilege and Teach Your Children Well “This new book from the leaders behind Challenge Success provides a thorough and balanced exploration of the structural challenges facing students, parents, educators, and administrators in our primary and secondary schools today. The authors’ unique approach of sharing proven strategies that enable students to thrive, while recognizing that the most effective solutions are tailored on a school-by-school basis, makes for a valuable handbook for anyone seeking to better understand the manycomplex dimensions at work in a successful learning environment.” —John J. DeGioia, President of Georgetown University

Sarah Miles (born 31 December 1941) is an English theatre and film actress.


Early life and career

Sarah Miles was born in the small town of Ingatestone, Essex, in South East England. She first attended Roedean but at the age of 15 she enrolled at RADA, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Shortly after her completion at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Miles debuted in 1962 as Shirley Taylor in Term of Trial (1962), co-starring with Laurence Olivier, with whom she had a brief affair. The following year, Miles became a well-reputed actress of British New Wave with her roles in Joseph Losey's The Servant (1963) and in Michelangelo Antonioni's Blowup (1966).

After acting in a variety of plays from 1966 to 1969, Miles was cast as Rosy Ryan, the daughter of Tom Ryan in David Lean's 1970 film, Ryan's Daughter. Her performance earned a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Although she has denied it, Miles is known for her frequent use of profanity. A November 1971 Cosmopolitan profile was subtitled "She uses words that would make a construction worker blush, but from her they sound refined". A profile in Women's Wear was titled "The Lady with the Truckdriver's Mouth".[1]

Miles is a practitioner of urine therapy. Citing Gandhi, who was an adherent of it, she has followed the tradition for thirty years, maintaining that it has kept her healthy and vigorous.[2]

In 1973, while filming The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing, her manager and associate David Whiting died under mysterious circumstances. During that same time, Miles was reported to be having an affair with Burt Reynolds, with whom she co-starred in the film.[1]

Since 1973, Miles has gone through periods of semi-retirement, only to appear in a film or a TV program. She most recently appeared in Well at the Trafalgar Studios and the Apollo Theatre opposite Natalie Casey.


Miles was married twice to the British playwright Robert Bolt, 1967–1975 and 1988–1995. He wrote and directed the film Lady Caroline Lamb, in which Miles played the eponymous heroine.

Her brother is film director, producer and screenwriter Christopher Miles.

From her mother Clarice Remnant's father, Francis Remnant, Sarah Miles claims to be the great-granddaughter of Prince Francis of Teck and thus a second cousin once removed of Elizabeth II of Great Britain.[3] She is mistaken in this.

Francis Remnant died unmarried in1910. The parents of Sarah Miles were John Miles and Clarice Vera Remnant, who married in Holborn in 1942. The marriage is also registered in the name of Clarice Vera Miles - so the couple may have lived together previously and Clarice Vera changed her name to Miles by Deed Poll.

The parents of Clarice Vera Remnant, born 1916, were Frank Remnant and Doris H Taylor, who married in Edmonton, at the end of 1915. Frank Remnant was born in Richmond, Surrey, in 1894 - perhaps some research was carried out and it was thought that Frank was a diminutive of Francis and it was wrongly assumed that he was Prince Francis of Teck. This is clearly impossible because Clarice Vera Remnamt was definitely the mother of Sarah Miles and she was born over five years after the death of Prince Francis.
