The Extent of Adoption of Effective Schools Programs. Vol. II. Review of Effective Schools Programs.
Miles, Matthew B.; And Others
A study was made of 39 secondary schools which had implemented new programs that had a research base in the effective schools/classrooms literature, that were well-defined, and that emphasized improvement effort at the building level. A discussion presenting the aims and methods of the study includes a working definition of the effective schools programs and a description of the sample schools' characteristics. Findings are reported on: (1) characteristics of the districts and community settings of the schools which adopted the new programs; (2) program targets, goals, components, types, research bases, and elementary-secondary differences; (3) timing and scope of implementation, including length, funding sources, and costs; and (4) types and degree of program impact, causative factors, and implementation intentions. A summary of findings includes a discussion on the future of effective schools programs in high schools. A list of programs and districts included in this study is appended. (JD)
