Case Studies in Program Improvement. Consortium Report Series.
Drew, Christopher J., Ed.
This set of case studies describes six local elementary and junior high school improvement projects. Chosen from the 30 comprising the Consortium Project's pool of target schools, these school sites represent a mix of urban, suburban, and rural districts in three of the project's six states. Each study describes (1) the social context, historical background, and educational climate of the school district; (2) facilities, organizational structure, faculty, and student body of the schools; (3) the school's involvement with the Consortium, including problem identification, program selection, training of faculty, and program implementation or adaptation; (4) decision making roles; and (5) outcomes. All six studies are followed by appendices and epilogues, and a discussion of cross-site themes and issues by members of the Harvard Graduate School of Education is presented. A bibliography is provided. (FM)
