The bottom line on ‘no excuses’ and poverty in school reform

The bottom line on ‘no excuses’ and poverty in school reform | Educational Leadership in Michigan | Scoop.it
Placing blame for the achievement gap on bad teachers and schools is dangerous, and here’s why.

 

Rather than closing schools and firing teachers we should be

ensuring:

that the schools have adequate resources and wrap-around services to actually meet the needs of their students; that teachers actually get the mentoring and professional development that they need to be successful; that the working conditions of the schools are such that teachers and students have their basic needs met.

International Center for Leadership in Education - 2012 Model Schools Conference - Handouts

International Center for Leadership in Education - 2012 Model Schools Conference - Handouts | Educational Leadership in Michigan | Scoop.it

2012 marked the 20th annual Model Schools Conference conducted by the International Ceneter for Leadership in Education. Willard R. Daggett and Raymond J. McNulty are the top leders of ICLE.

 

The 2012 conference, held over 5 days at the end of June in Kissimmee, FL, consisted of over 100 presentations by practitioners, consultants, teachers, and administrators. Nearly all of the handouts and powerpoints from these sessions are posted on this site (or will be shortly).

 

This page houses links to numerous case studies and front-line accounts of schools that are succeeding, many with detailed accounts of how they planned, implemented, and evaluated their work. More theoretical presentations were also made that provide useful frameworks for strategies and tactics.-JL

"Organizations (schools) don’t change, people do!" via Leadership and Learning

"Organizations (schools) don’t change, people do!" via Leadership and Learning | Educational Leadership in Michigan | Scoop.it

"Organizations don’t change, people do!"

 

"There is no organizational change. All change is individual change."

 

Five ways to influence change:

Change starts with me! - "Your level of belief is critical to your success." Begin with a conversation! - "A conversation that allows people to understand and express themselves moves people more quickly towards a change." Quick Wins! - Work with the "most receptive" first. Grow Leaders! - "if you are trying to change a group of any size, you can’t, do it yourself." Start Slow! - "When you realize that all change is individual, you see that it will take some time."
