Keeping the Faith until the Outcomes Are Obvious.

Phi Delta Kappan, v78 n9 p706-09 May 1997
A reform initiative's demise is often due not to its ineffectiveness, but to its inability to deliver immediate results.

Charting progress can help maintain everyone's faith by distinguishing between long-term and immediate outcomes and by using conversations as benchmarks. (11 references) (MLH)
