Planning and Changing, v44 n1-2 p21-35 2013
This study focuses on district leadership designed to improve student achievement. We employed a formative experiment design methodology, a type of design study, to investigate the leadership efforts to improve student and teacher learning. The findings suggest that leadership through professional development and an instructional framework led to improved student outcomes. In addition, we document the importance of building local expertise in leading school improvement efforts.
