National Committee for Citizens in Education, Columbia, MD. ACCESS, The Information Clearinghouse about Public Schools.
Research on school-based management approaches to educational reform, including effective schools research, is presented. Included are an introductory section on school-based improvement and its link to effective schools, by Anne T. Henderson; descriptive summaries of 53 references; a list of organizations to contact for further information; and a 2-page list of audio-visual materials on effective schools and resources. The research is divided into two topics: effective schools and school-based management. Each topic is subdivided by magazine/journal article and reports, studies and books. Each periodical entry contains the source (author, title of article, journal title, and related bibliographic data), a 2-3 paragraph summary and ordering information. The entries for the non-journal references contain the source (author, title, institutional source, date, length) along with a summary and ordering information including price. The introduction to this printout describes school-based management and improvement, the connection between effective schools and implementation involving a collaborative planning process, the Dade County plan, and 10 pitfalls to school-based improvement.
