Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning, Aurora, CO.
This manual is designed to help schools make successful school reform a reality. It provides the background and perspectives necessary for a school constituency to understand the current climate of education reform in the United States and what is known about successful school reform. The manual also provides inquiry-based techniques for conducting a study of school strengths, weaknesses, and student needs, developing a comprehensive reform program, selecting a model to meet the school's needs, and building ownership of, implementing, and sustaining reform. Following an introduction, chapters are organized around themes of: (1) the history and background of reform; (2) understanding school reform; (3) getting started at reform; (4) planning for reform; and (5) sustaining school reform. The manual is designed for use by a team of individuals. An appendix describes eight resource organizations and materials. (Contains 29 references.) (SLD)
