"Extremely interesting throughout, the text suggests a
plan-do-study-act cycle in which reform starts small and then
gradually expands as educators study their failures and learn from
those mistakes."-- J.D. Neal, Choice Magazine
"Guided by 'improvement science' pioneered in the medical field, Learning to Improve shows how education could finally stop its reform churn...The book's vision is ambitious--and far more likely to succeed than the reform churn we've tolerated for decades." --Lisa Hansel, Thomas B. Fordham Institute
"Learning to Improve is a content-rich, thoughtful, practical and well-organized resource for anyone committed to improving schools.
