Getting to Scale: Evidence, Professionalism, and Community
Slavin, Robert E.
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v21 n1 p60-63 2016
Evidence-based reform, in which proven programs are scaled up to reach many students, is playing an increasing role in American education. This article summarizes articles in this issue to explain how Reading Recovery has managed to sustain itself and go to scale over more than 30 years. It argues that Reading Recovery has succeeded due to a focus on "evidence," "professionalism," and "community." Implications of the experience of Reading Recovery for policy and practice are discussed.
