A Comprehensive System of School Reform Based on Student Results
Little, Mary E.
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2007 n1 Win 2007
School reform is achieved through the collaboration and coordination among educators with the mutual goal of improved learning for all students. Given the complexity within and among educational systems, the need to develop and implement a common framework of school reform based upon mutually agreed-upon goals, standards, outcomes, and competencies must be developed (Hargreaves & Fink, 2000; Senge, 1990). Coordination and continued communication among each of the educational partners (students, teachers, administrators, policy analysts, researchers, community members, and parents) provide valuable input for continuous improvement within this tri-level system of school reform based upon student results (Fullan, 2005). The resulting networks among educators responsible for policy, professional development, local educational programming, and classroom implementation improve student outcomes. This manuscript describes a comprehensive systems approach to tri-level (Fullan, 2005) school reform to improve learning for all students through the use of disaggregated data, researched instructional practices, instructional coaching, and continuous progress monitoring. Several major topics will be addressed, including an inclusive continuum of curriculum and instruction, a standards-based process of professional development, and continuous monitoring of student results through multiple methods, including classroom action research.
