Crucial Conversations about America's Schools
Draper, John C.; Protheroe, Nancy
Educational Research Service
It's up to school leaders to shift the momentum away from conversations based on misperceptions and toward those that study critical issues about school improvement. "Crucial Conversations About America's Schools" talks about how to do this and provides examples of how to reframe conversations on the hot-button but important topics of low-achieving schools, teacher pay for performance, the achievement gap, charter schools, and the dropout problem.
