Effective Schools

About Us

1. All children can learn and come to school motivated to do so.
2. Schools should be held accountable for measured student achievement;
3. Schools should disaggregate measured student achievement to ensure that all students learn.
4. School reform efforts should be collaborative, research-based, and data-driven.

Sound familiar? They should.

These are the basic principles upon which No Child Left Behind was based and the basic tenets of the primary K-12 accreditation agencies, including the North Central Association. What you might not know is that these principles were first articulated by Effective Schools researchers-including Dr. Lezotte-more than 30 years ago.

Unlike school reform trends that have come and gone, the Effective Schools process has withstood the test of time and has become the "gold standard" for schools seeking to improve student achievement. And because the Effective Schools model is grounded in research and proven practices, it has evolved to incorporate the latest thinking on leadership, systems theory, and total quality management to become a multifaceted, integrated approach to continuous school improvement and the leadership that is more relevant to today than ever.

We can, whenever and wherever we choose, successfully teach all children whose schooling is of interest to us. We already know more than we need to do that. Whether or not we do it must finally depend on how we feel about the fact that we haven't so far.
