Deasy, John E.
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n1 p13-15 Sep 2000
The superintendent of Coventry (Rhode Island) Schools explains how he converted annual town meetings from uncivil, interminable budget-slashing sessions to expressions of community support for student-centered reforms and a construction/renovation bond issue. The board grasped assessment difficulties by taking state-mandated tests for eighth-graders. (MLH)
