  1. The Gritty Truth of School Transformation: Eight Phases of Growth to Instructional Rigor

    Schools define themselves by state metrics. But when we dig down into the numbers, questions remain: Do good schools get positive numbers despite good instruction, or because of it? Do lower performing schools get negative numbers because of subpar instruction, or something else? How does school leadership factor into these outcomes? Which characteristics of the building's community determine a school's success. Amy M. Dujon's The Gritty Truth of School Transformation: Eight Phases of Growth to Instructional Rigor answers these question and more by revealing how schools of all shapes, sizes and socio-economic and academic backgrounds can achieve real staff and student growth.

  5. What Works May Hurt: Side Effects in Education

    Medical products are required to disclose both their intended outcomes and known side effects but educational policy and practice carries no such labels. Thus, teachers, school leaders and the public are not told, for example, that "This program will help your students' reading scores, but it may make them hate reading", or that "School choice may improve students" test scores, but it may lead to the collapse of public education. Yong Zhao shines a light on the long-ignored phenomenon of side effects of education policies and practices, bringing a fresh and perhaps surprising perspective to evidence-based practices and policies. This volume will help the field of education to advance beyond the extreme pendulum swings that characterise today's school reform efforts.
