DESCRIPTION

Since 1996, Lee Jenkins' Improving Student Learning has led the way in teaching educators how to improve performance through the use of quality principles. Now Jenkins has updated his best-seller, adding more examples and simplifying the content to make it easier for anyone to implement the concepts. Teachers and administrators alike will find the information in this book invaluable, as they use the concepts to improve performance and productivity in their schools.

Through his previous work as a school administrator and his current role as a consultant, Jenkins has seen first hand what it takes to make these techniques work in schools. The second edition draws from his experience with many more examples for every level, from pre-school through graduate school, covering a wide variety of subjects. Teachers will find many examples of how other teachers have successfully used these concepts in their classrooms, and administrators will see how school-wide and district-wide implementations are being conducted.

Improving Student Learning: Applying Deming's Quality Principles in Classrooms, Second Edition answers the critical question of how to measure improvement and gives very direct and important information about what to measure. Jenkins describes the significant influences Deming's profound knowledge can have on education.
