If schools are to improve, they must abandon the business-oriented rhetoric of the accountability movement and concentrate on what we know will improve student achievement: improving the quality of instruction in all classrooms. To accomplish this, educators first must define high-quality teaching and measure how closely teachers in the classrooms meet this ideal. Then they need to create a staff development program that enables teachers to use high-quality teaching practices. Finally, schools need to develop coherent curricula that are meaningful to diverse student populations.
