Stringfield, Sam; Ross, Steven M.
School Effectiveness and School Improvement, v8 n1 p151-61 Mar 1997
The Memphis Restructuring Initiative's first-year data-gathering efforts have yielded implications for policy and practice. This article discusses findings and implications in seven areas: opportunity to choose, goals and directions, professional development, "constructivist" teaching and learning, authentic assessment, disjunctures between most reforms and the state testing system, and reforms' staying power.
