Contrary to the widespread perception of school districts as rigid bureaucracies and obstacles to reform, this volume shows how school districts can and do make essential contributions to the renewal and enhancement of American education. In this unique and very timely volume, an authoritative group of contributors presents and analyzes emerging evidence on district policy and leadership.

Providing compelling images of what is possible, this book:

  • Assembles the best current research, including a fascinating case study of San Diego’s Alvarado/Bersin reform initiative.
  • Expands the conversation on what school districts are, what they do, and how they can enhance the quality of teaching and learning in U.S. schools.
  • Introduces powerful conceptual frameworks for visualizing school districts as a catalyst for meaningful and sustained reform, highlighting particular roles the district can play to prompt instructional renewal.
  • Identifies dilemmas and contradictions that arise when examining the district as a key unit of analysis, raising important questions for future research and practice.

Review:

School Districts and Instructional Renewal puts a much-needed spotlight on the links between school district leadership and the improvement of teaching and learning. It shows us how important it is for districts, like schools, to develop their intellectual and organizational capacities in order to become instructionally focused learning communities. The cases are compelling and the analyses raise important questions for researchers, policymakers, and practitioners.”
Barbara Neufeld, Education Matters, Inc.
