Doubling Student Performance

. . . And Finding the Resources to Do It

Allan R. Odden,

Doubling Student Performance: . . . And Finding the Resources to Do It
 
 

"In my work, I see the power of good schools to change young lives for the better almost every day. This book takes us behind the doors of unusually high-performing high-poverty schools to show us how they do it and where they get the funding. The book is a valuable tool for educators who want to improve their results and a reminder to parents and policy makers that we should never expect less."
—Kati Haycock, President

Radically reform your school and improve academic achievement using readily accessible resources!

At a time when the United States is struggling with far-reaching educational reform, school leaders need a blueprint for dramatically improving student success and supporting those efforts by effectively reallocating and managing available resources.

Doubling Student Performance combines the latest research with the authors′ national study of diverse schools that were able to significantly boost student achievement. Strategies focus on reducing class size, promoting professional development, locating necessary funding, and providing academic support to struggling students. School leaders will find:

  • Examples and case studies that include high-minority and high-poverty schools
  • 10 key strategies for dramatically increasing student achievement, such as setting ambitious goals and emphasizing a collaborative culture
  • Clear steps and specific tools to successfully reallocate resources

This book is a valuable tool for educators and policy makers who understand that reform is only possible when schools have the human and financial resources to do it.
