Balancing Research-Based Initiatives: Help for the Practitioner.
Zimmerman, Judith A.
Two education initiatives in Ohio, the Pairwise Mentoring System and the Baldrige Approach for School Improvement, show promise for raising the achievement of K-12 students. As busy educational leaders who are expected to lead change efforts in their schools, preservice and inservice administrators can benefit by seeing the connections between new initiatives rather than by viewing them as add-ons. Pathwise and Baldrige are both frameworks that are based on research and proven practice. This paper summarizes their basic components and similarities, and presents an effort, in chart form, to align the 7 Baldrige categories with the 19 criteria in the 4 Pathwise domains. The paper also explores ways to integrate the study of Pathwise and Baldrige within the educational administration program. (SLD)
