The Realisation of Quality in Inviting Schools in the United States of America
Steyn, Gertruide
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v1 n2 Jul-Dec 2006
Providing quality education is the single most important issue in education today. Advocates of Invitational Education (IE) maintain that the effective implementation of its philosophy can lead to quality education in schools. This article describes a qualitative study of how inviting schools in the United States of America succeed in implementing and sustaining IE, thereby providing quality education. The study was done in selected schools in New Mexico and Kentucky in the United States of America that had previously received the prestigious International Award for Invitational Education. The purpose of Inviting school awards is to recognise schools, districts, and universities throughout the world that exhibit the philosophy of IE (Inviting School Award Program 2005). The findings reveal that adherence to IE principles also revealed adherence to Quality Management (QM) principles, which are, the key role of leadership; focus on the customer; teacher collaboration, and empowerment; continuous improvement; and professional training.
