A District-Wide School Library Self Study: A Story of Improving from within
McGhee, Marla W.; Jansen, Barbara A.
Library Media Connection, v27 n2 p12-13 Oct 2008
Being committed to continuous improvement means having the will to engage in a journey. The journey's path may be long and unpredictable, but most believe the path is well worth navigating if improvement is the end result. Sometimes the most poignant and successful improvement endeavors begin when people examine themselves from within. When they assess themselves from the inside out, they can grapple with the reality of their strengths while honestly owning up to their needs or weaknesses. This article describes the case of a school district that courageously engaged in a year-long improvement effort focusing on its library media programs and practices.
