“Improvement is essentially a school-by-school process, enlightened by the degree to which those associated with each school working to improve it have the data required for building a useful agenda” .
--John Goodlad , University of Washington
“The relationships among the adults in schools are the basis, the pre-condition, the sine qua non that allow, energize and sustain all attempts at school improvement. Unless adults talk with one another, observe one another, and help one another, very little will change.
--Roland Barth, Founder, Harvard Principal’s Center
“Even in schools with toxic or threadbare cultures, it is possible to find things worth celebrating. Those stories, values and traditions provide a vital point for updating, reinvigorating, and reframing the school’s identity and culture”.
--Lee Bolman and Terrence Deal, School Culture Researchers
