"Helping schools to implement systemwide change to improve student academic performance can be exhilarating, but practitioners often face deeply frustrating obstacles. This is absolutely the best book I have come across as a map for successfully navigating and mastering the difficult process of schoolwide change. The book provides guidance for promoting a problem-solving approach throughout the school to improve every classroom teacher's day-to-day instructional practices. The authors offer valuable recommendations for training teachers to serve as intervention consultants; assessing academic delays and monitoring student progress; and making efficient use of personnel and school resources."
