Improving Schools in Turbulent Times
Hatch, Thomas
New Educator, v2 n4 p267-276 Dec 2006
Beyond finding sufficient funds and resources or implementing particular policies and programs, schools need to develop the capacity to overcome the constantly changing demands of an often turbulent educational environment. Drawing from studies of six schools that have maintained good reputations and records of performance over significant periods of time, this article describes three "internal" and three "external" practices that schools use to manage the demands around them and to make improvements. (Contains 1 figure and 1 footnote.)
