An ACCESS Printout on School Based Improvement and Effective Schools: A Perfect Match for Bottom-Up Reform.
National Committee for Citizens in Education, Columbia, MD.
School-based management and improvement, supported by parent and community involvement, offer the most promising route to lasting reform in the public schools. Following an extensive introduction (part I) outlining school-based management and improvement concepts, the effective schools connection, the Dade County (Florida) experience, and 10 common pitfalls, this publication presents a 4-part annotated bibliography of effective-schools and school-based management literature. The effective-schools sections (parts II and III) contain 12 magazine and journal articles and 14 reports, studies, and books by various experts, including Beverly Anderson, James Garvin, Daniel Levine, Lawrence Lezotte, Stewart Purkey, Bruce Wilson, and others. The school-based management sections (parts IV and V) contain 20 magazine and journal articles and 21 reports, studies, and books by organizations and individual authors. Each bibliographic entry contains the source, a summary, and ordering information. Part VI lists organizations to contact for further information, and part VII describes three audiovisual resources and ordering information. The last section lists four relevant newsletters and their addresses. (MLH)
