The Tipping Point in School Culture
Nelsen, Jeff; Hill, Bob
School Administrator, v66 n4 p22-25 Apr 2009
Once changes or innovations reach the tipping point, they spread throughout an organization and become entrenched as part of the culture, becoming "just the way we do things around here." These authors see the tipping point at play with systemic improvement in two urban school districts with which they have worked. Here, they describe the lessons they learned about the successful process of addressing whole-district systemic improvement without involving the whole district in intensive, costly training and support.
