An Empirical Study of the Change Project as Both Teaching Tool and Outcome of an Educational Leadership Development Program.
King, Jean A.; Schleisman, Jane; Kistler, Susan
The Bush Foundation's leadership-development programs are an important source of inservice leadership training in Minnesota. The extent to which these programs influence pre-collegiate education is explored. The paper draws on a longitudinal study that asked two basic questions: what are the long-term effects of the Bush Leadership Programs on individuals, schools, and districts? and to what extent and in what ways do participants in the current Bush Educators' Program successfully facilitate change that affects teaching and learning in their schools? The report is presented in six sections: (1) an explication of the role of school-based change projects across the Bush Leadership Development Programs (1976-present); (2) a review of the literature and concepts undergirding the Bush programs' use of school-based change projects; (3) an overview of the methods used to examine the role of the change projects in different districts; (4) survey results of the perceived impact of almost 500 of these projects in the first two Bush programs; (5) a case study of project outcomes in one small district with a high concentration of Bush graduates; and (6) the implications of these results for both leadership-development programs and for school-change efforts in general.
