About this title

Synopsis:

Drawing from their many years of experience in education, authors Karolyn Snyder, Michele Acker-Hocevar, and Kristen Snyder have written a breakthrough book on the transformation of schools. Living on the Edge of Chaos: Leading Schools into the Global Age explores the many challenges facing educators in a rapidly changing world with a diversifying population and diminishing resources. The authors examine the evolution of education and identify many of the hurdles that prevent schools from succeeding, such as bureaucratic obstacles, increased testing, and poor internal communication. Many of these problems can be corrected through the use of more systematic approaches. Living on the Edge of Chaos discusses the methods used to overcome these obstacles and provides ways to increase overall student performance.

Through the use of the Education Quality Benchmark System, Living on the Edge of Chaos provides the tools and information necessary to lead schools in this age of global transformation. The book establishes a solid relationship between Quality work cultures and student achievement trends. By using the quality tools presented in the book, school leaders will see an improvement in the transfer of information and as a result, increased performance by students. Schools that have implemented the Education Quality Benchmark System have seen an overall improvement in student performances on standardized state tests.
