Great improvements in student learning can be facilitated if teachers and administrators set goals, work collaboratively, and keep track of student achievement data from many sources. Many examples are presented of schools and districts that have achieved both short- and long-term success. The seven chapters are: (1) "Effective Teamwork"; (2) "Measurable Goals"; (3) "Performance Data"; (4) "Rapid Results: The Breakthrough Strategy"; (5) "Research and Development"; (6) "Redefining Results"; and (7) "Opportunities for Action Within And Among the Subject Areas." Leadership is discussed in the conclusion and an appendix is included on conducting effective, time-efficient meetings. Contains an index and approximately 170 references. (RJM)
