Three School Turnaround Principles for Success
With more than a decade of experience in school reform, WestEd’s Fred Tempes knows how challenging it is for chronically low-performing schools to improve, but he also knows that almost any can accomplish dramatic turnaround.
What it takes is “hard work around a core set of principles over an extended period of time,” says Tempes, Director of WestEd’s Comprehensive School Assistance Program.
Sounds simple, but a basic challenge is that no one can make the improvement happen for a school. Rather, the entire school community must pull together collectively and do the work for themselves.
Key Points Discussed:
- Local Support and Collaboration
- Effective Implementation
- Mutual Accountability
