About this product
- DescriptionThis is essential reading for any school leader, education reformer, policymaker, or citizen interested in the forces that promote school change. Giving test results to an incoherent, badly run school doesn't automatically make it a better school. The work of turning a school around entails improving the kwledge and skills of teachers-changing their kwledge of content and how to teach it-and helping them to understand where their students are in their academic development. Low-performing schools, and the people who work in them, don't kw what to do. If they did, they would be doing it already. So writes Richard Elmore in Unwarranted Intrusion, an essay critiquing the accountability mandates and high-stakes testing policies of the No Child Left Behind Act. In <i>School Reform from the Inside Out</i>, one of the country's leading experts on the successes and failures of American education policy tackles issues ranging from teacher development to testing to failing schools. As Elmore aptly tes, successful school reform begins from the inside out with teachers, administrators, and school staff, t with external mandates or standards.
