Can Schools Improve?
Phi Delta Kappan, Vol. 86, No. 07 (March 2005): 545-550.
Clayton Christensen, Sally Aaron, William Clark
After decades of reform efforts, our public schools remain plagued with problems. Who is to blame? Our research suggests the answer is no one. The problem is that the processes and resource-allocation criteria that determine schools' capabilities are misaligned with the demands society places on the schools. The only viable remedy to this problem is politically unpalatable. This means that the best hope for reform will come from new and separate organizations specifically designed to meet the needs of educating today's population, providing students exactly what they need when they need it.
