Miami's "Zone" Teaches Lessons about Low-Performing Schools
McFadden, Ledyard
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n8 p557-562 Apr 2009
Miami-Dade County Public Schools invested in an intensive, three-year program to improve the learning of students in its 39 lowest-performing schools. Known as the Zone, these schools experienced mixed success, with elementary schools reducing the gap between various groups of students while middle and high schools were less successful. However, the system learned a great deal from the experience, especially the value of targeting assistance to the neediest areas as a way to influence the whole system.
