Ten Steps to Educational Reform teaches school leaders how to successfully implement lasting change in their institutions. Site-based management, charter schools, clustering, whole language instruction, cooperative learning, and outcome-based education all show promise as reform strategies, yet they require consistent application on the part of administrators to be effective. Success lies in the simultaneous implementation of ten key components including the school's organizational structure, its leadership, its motivation, communication, planning, decision making and conflict management processes, its power distribution, and its attitude toward change. Robert Palestini wisely leads the school administrator toward the ultimate goal of integrating and institutionalizing educational reform.

Editorial Reviews

Site-based management, charter schools, clustering, whole-language instruction, cooperative learning, and outcome-based education all show promise as reform strategies, says Palestrini (education administration and leadership, St. Joseph's U., Philadelphia), but also require consistent application on the part of administrators to be effective. He offers ten key components that must be implemented simultaneously to achieve success. No date is noted for the first edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
