Length of book:128 pages
The chapters in this book outline a plan that, if followed, will improve test scores in any school district. The amount of improvement is determined by various variables, including present level of achievement, previous implementation of some of these concepts, the level of implementation, the vision from the top, and the focus on the plan. A school district must make a decision to create this plan and to make this plan their primary focus, if it is to be successful in improving test scores. If a school district does that, the resulting test scores will steadily increase.
Gary W. Quinn is a great superintendent who has shared a simple and focused set of strategies used at Bartlesville Public School that will work for all of us. This book is a must-read for educators and parents seeking quality, data-driven education for their children.
