Perspectives / Five Myths about School Improvement
Scherer, Marge
Educational Leadership, v72 n5 p7-7 Feb 2015
"Improving Schools: What Works?" is the theme chosen for this issue of "Educational Leadership (EL)," and this theme should help dispel just one of the myths that have grown up about school reform: that educators are stuck in the status quo and don't care to implement change. This and some other myths about school improvement that "EL" writers contradict include: We don't really know what works; A single reform will move the needle; One improvement is as good as another; Researchers agree about what's needed most; and Educators resist accountability. Evidence abounds that educators are hard at work improving schools. More support from policy-makers for internal efforts would go a long way toward making them more successful.
