Rochester's Reforms: The Right Prescription?
Murray, Christine E.; Grant, Gerald; Swaminathan, Raji
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n2 p148-55 Oct 1997
Although Rochester, New York, is a pioneer in teacher reform, change has been painfully slow. Pockets of success are not reflected in district statistics. The 1987 reforms directed at teachers were not far-reaching enough to ensure improved test scores, given continuing problems of large class sizes, crowded schools, students' increasing poverty, and lack of unified community support for organizational change.
