From the Publisher"Scaling Up Success tackles one of the greatest challenges facing school districts: How do we take successful programs and best practices serving a few classrooms or students and scale them up to serve schools throughout the district? Using innovations in technology as an example, the essays take a thoughtful and well-documented look at the issues facing districts and the ways in which scaling up can be accomplished. This book brings together some of the best education authors and researchers and provides a compelling study on how districts can scale up technology-based educational innovations as well as for how any innovation or policy might be spread to every student and school."
--Thomas W. Payzant, superintendent, Boston Public Schools
