Not by Schools Alone: Sharing Responsibility for America's Education Reform
Not by Schools Alone takes a compelling look at the realities of modern education: attitude problems hindering change, isolation and bureaucratic rigidity, and proliferating social problems afflicting children and families. Author Sandra Waddock proposes that we all, whether in business, social service, or health care agencies, government or civic leaders, or simply parents, have roles to play and responsibilities to bear for education reform. For schools to change requires shifts of enormous proportions within schools themselves to reengineer the educational goals, content, processes, and systems to assure that all children learn at high levels. This cannot be done in a vacuum, but should and must be done by tapping the strengths of other key stakeholders in society and restructuring so that responsibility can be shared appropriately.
