Description

For decades, school improvement efforts have been met with disappointing results. To ignite positive change, educators must adopt next-generation processes.


School Improvement for the Next Generation expands the planning, implementation and monitoring framework of first-generation school improvement into a focused cycle that combines collaboration, accountability, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.


The results of this next-generation process are lasting gains in student achievement and systemic changes in educational practices.


The authors:



  • Explain the fundamental shifts in thinking and practice of school improvement

  • Include concrete examples from schools across North America

  • Provide specific strategies and best practices for each phase in the cycle

  • Emphasise the importance of improving both teaching and learning

  • Focus on the importance of leadership within the school improvement process
