About this title


Updated Edition of Best Seller!

This second edition reflects the authors′ experience in working with many superintendents and principals over the years to use the instruments and procedures outlined in the book to improve organizations.

From the Back Cover:

Leithwood and Aitken have created a handbook for developing a system of collaborative assessment, strategic planning, and accountability in schools and districts. This book supplies not only the instruments to obtain data on how well schools and districts are achieving their purposes but also a means by which to establish achievable standards of expectation. The authors' research included studies of Canadian and American schools and involved the participation of district personnel, teachers, students, parents, and board members. The authors used a real school to help them develop their model of an "ideal school" for the year 2000. Using this experimental model as a basis, they describe specific features to be found in an ideal school and present ways to measure comparable features of existing schools and districts. They provide guidelines for using data generated in these assessments to help move schools toward the ideal. Making Schools Smarter presents a comprehensive process by which a district or a school can learn about its entire operation in order to initiate change based on solid data. Because the authors' ideal school is a "learning organization", movement toward the ideal helps schools "get smarter" and enhance their collective capacities to serve students better. This is an excellent resource for administrators and superintendents, as well as for students and teachers of educational leadership and school restructuring.
