A Better Return on Investment: Reallocating Resources To Improve Student Achievement. [Booklet with Audiotapes].
North Central Regional Educational Lab., Oak Brook, IL.
Standards-based educational reform has prompted the education system as a whole to examine whether the dollars put into the system reflect an investment in meeting the overarching goals of school reform. Driven by a common goal of improving the achievement of all students to increase the productivity of society in general, the education industry is taking a hard look at where its dollars are going. Schools and districts must play a key role in deciding how resources should be used. Indeed, many schools are looking for ways to reallocate resources to achieve their educational vision. This booklet, "The Dynamics of School Resource Reallocation" (Allan Odden and Sarah Archibald), and the two audiocassette tapes in this package address the issue from multiple viewpoints and levels, in both rural and urban settings. The information is not intended as a guide for change, but rather as a presentation of how systems can assess their current situation and make changes, if needed. The booklet concludes with a list of references, resource Internet sites, publications, and contacts. (RT)
