The Solutions Fieldbook: Tools and Strategies for Schools

Although there are no simple answers to the complex problems about the quality of teaching and administration in public schools, there are tools and strategies to help overcome the weaknesses in performance management systems. In Solutions, the authors explain how to improve the process methods to reach the system goals and produce the kind of learning the new reforms demand. Recent examples from a growing number of schools are provided to illustrate the use of solutions principles such as, defined standard operating classroom teaching and administrative supervisory practices as well as logistical support to overcome the tyranny of chance. Formerly failing but now successful school systems describe solutions strategies and tactics to 'leave no child behind.'
