Organizing Schools for Improvement: Lessons From Chicago. Anthony S. Bryk, Penny Bender Sebring, Elaine Allensworth, Stuart Luppescu, and John Q. Easton. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2010. Describes the changes that have occurred in Chicago schools. What’s so important about Chicago? Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education. While I’m not a big fan of Duncan I am a fan of most the “essential supports” described for schools such as Leadership as the Driver for Change, Parent-Community-School Ties, Professional Capacity, Student-Centered Learning Climate, and Instructional Guidance.
