The New Philosophy for K-12 Education: A Deming Framework for Transforming America's Schools
The premise of this book is to show that America's schools don't need to reform, they need to transform. This requires us to question everything we believe about our educational system. In a commonsense language known to school leaders, the author translates Deming's philosophy so it can easily be applied in K-12 schools. Learn the three key elements of the transformation process: (1) adoption of a systems perspective, (2) application of the essential statistical methods, and (3) leadership to create, provide, and maintain a healthy environment for work, learning, and continuous improvement.
