An Overview of School Improvement Programs.
Edmonds, Ronald R.
Programs of school improvement based on characteristics of effective schools as identified by school effects researchers have proliferated in recent years. This paper describes major school improvement programs now underway throughout the United States: (1) programs organized and administered within schools and school districts in New York City; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; St. Louis, Missouri; New Haven, Connecticut; and Chicago, Illinois; (2) programs administered by state education agencies in Connecticut and New Jersey; and (3) programs of research, development, and technical assistance at Kent State University (Ohio), the University of Michigan, and Michigan State University. All the programs described are school-based, and while they advocate increased financial support for schools, all focus on more efficient use of existing resources. Moreover, all use increased achievement for underprivileged children as the measure of gain. (Author/TE)
