O&L 732 - Data, Assessment, and Curriculum (2)

The framework for the course will be standards-based reform and a systematic approach to thinking about how leaders in urban school districts work together to improve a whole system of schools and refuse to settle for just a few more good schools as a result of their efforts. The context in urban settings demands that leaders must inspire those they lead with a sense of urgency and convince them to embrace the goal student learning for all. This course also explores ways for shaping a school system as a healthy place for everyone's growth and development, with special attention to faculty, administrators, support staff, and the superintendent.
