Fish Philosophy and School Culture: A School and University Collaboration
Pardieck, Sherrie; Bussan, Beth; Bond, Ann; Greer, Elaine
School-University Partnerships, v10 n1 p15-18 Spr 2017
In the fall of 2004, an early childhood education center in the Midwest experienced a period of transition resulting from a significant turnover in administration and staff. Seeking strategies to improve and sustain a positive school culture, a newly formed Leadership Team looked to the business community for improvement strategies. The Team adapted and implemented the well proven "Fish Philosophy" as a basis for the improvement project. Through the school and university partnership, they collaboratively tailored the business philosophy with activities and routines to fit their educational settings. The philosophy's four guiding principles were successfully incorporated into the school and university environments.
