9781612501345: School Turnarounds: The Essential Role of Districts (Educational Innovations Series)

The inspiration for this book was a crucial observation: that if the school turnaround movement is to have widespread and lasting consequences, it will need to incorporate meaningful district involvement in its efforts.

The result is a volume that considers school turnaround efforts at the district level, examining the evidence thus far and indicating fruitful directions for district-based initiatives going forward. At the heart of the book are case studies of districts—in Philadelphia, Charlotte-Mecklenburg, Denver, Sacramento, and Long Beach—that have developed systemwide policies and programs for instituting turnaround reforms in their member schools. These cases—and the book as a whole—bring district-based initiatives and options into the larger discussion of the turnaround movement and its potential for improving chronically low-performing schools.

About the Author:

Heather Zavadsky is the director of research and implementation at the Texas High School Project and the author of Bringing School Reform to Scale: Five Award-Winning Urban Districts (Harvard Education Press).

Review:

"School Turnarounds is a thought provoking, must read for anyone in education reform. The book provides a ray of hope that visionary leaders might be able to fix the broken systems which have played a significant role in creating broken schools." — Jason O'Brien, Journal of School Choice
