Description

This book shows that the current focus on high stakes tests has narrowed the definition of a successful school. It demonstrates that, in addition to focusing on standardized measures, educators also need to look at other matters, such as

- what actually goes on in their classrooms

- teachers' professional development

- parental involvement

- school climate These chapters were written by school leaders who are champions of accountability but who also ask us to take a look at the bigger picture.
