No Excuses: Houston Educator Thaddeus Lotts Puts Failing Schools to Shame.
Palmaffy, Tyce
Policy Review, n87 p18-23 Jan-Feb 1998
Explains how one Houston (Texas) educator (Thaddeus Lott) has turned failing schools into laboratories for learning. It describes how Lott used a charter giving him freedom to train staff, develop a curriculum, and make hiring, firing, and promotion decisions at four schools to improve reading and math skills. Concluding comments address the resistance of Texas educators to duplicate his successful methods. (GR)
