Teacher Leadership and School Reform: A Case Study of the Accelerating Student Achievement Project in a Central Kentucky School District
Robinson, Jennifer B.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Kentucky
In the study reported here, I explored the notion of teacher leadership as described by individuals participating in a district-wide school reform initiative, the Accelerating Student Achievement Project. Through the district-wide project, teacher leaders were identified at each of the middle and high schools to further develop the schools' curricular and instructional practices for the purpose of improving student achievement. Lessons learned from this study will contribute to the growing body of literature on teacher leadership and the development of professional learning communities in schools. Within the context of one district's initiative to implement a structured teacher leadership program, factors associated with effective teacher leadership practices and barriers to the work are explored.
