Louis also conducts research on organizational changes within higher education, with particular attention to faculty roles, and on international comparative policy in educational reform. A past president of Division A of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), she is a widely published author in the field. Recent books include Organizing for School Change, Leadership for Change and School Improvement: International Perspectives, Handbook of Educational Administration, Second Edition, and Organizational Learning in Schools. Louis earned a bachelor′s degree in History from Swarthmore College and a doctorate in sociology from Columbia University.

Review:

"This book (will)...get you thinking and ready to grapple with some of the major issues facing counseling today." (Dan LaBore, Bush Program Project Coordinator 2005-01-05)

"Principals who have joined forces with their school counselor in leadership, advocacy, and systemic change are seeing the results in equity of opportunity for all students in their charge. This book is a tool to help the principal partner in support of the school counselors′  efforts to act intentionally to drive data in a positive direction." (Carolyn Stone, Associate Professor & Counselor Educator, University of North Florida, Jacksonville 2005-01-05)

"Seashore Louis and Gordon provide a remarkably insightful and user-friendly portfolio of strategies for fully integrating the student personnel function into the quest to create more productive schools." (Joseph Murphy, Professor 2005-01-27)

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Many headteachers feel they lack the personnel necessary to raise student achievement to mandated levels. Yet, as school leaders seek to improve educational outcomes, one of the most underutilized groups remains student support professionals - the counsellors, social workers, and nurses already on site. Karen Seashore Louis and Molly F. Gordon offer a practical approach to creating a fully integrated student support community that contributes to increasing achievement levels. Incorporating research and practical strategies into a broader paradigm of leadership, they offer directives for implementing reform initiatives and rigorously assessing their effectiveness. Bridging theory and practice, this book provides: o An examination of emerging models linking student support programs and academic achievement o Guidelines and resources for overcoming barriers to reform o Exercises and suggestions to help start the change process o Case studies of principals who have successfully integrated their student support services o An expanded comprehensive support model (CSP) that considers the multi-professional nature of student support activities Reorganizing existing resources is the most efficient path to school reform. Rather than limiting the counsellor or social worker s role, use it to form a comprehensive support program to help improve school achievement!. Bookseller Inventory # AAX9781412916608
