The Journalism Research Fellows Report: What Makes an Effective School? Studies of Schools That Work in: Arkansas, Florida, Maine, Maryland, Nebraska, Virginia, Urban Districts Nationwide.
Brundage, Diane, Ed.
The news series contained in this book describe educational practices that have worked well in six states. The schools studied include elementary and secondary programs in the rural North and Midwest, the urban East, and suburban and rural South. Each educational journalist selected a group of schools that were judged outstanding by scholastic or social standards and devoted several months to classroom observations, and interviews with school personnel, parents, and students. Their findings explore subjects ranging from community attitudes, to the effectiveness of teachers and principals. Together, these reports show that many schools do work well in diverse settings around the country. (Author/CJ)
