How to Create Effective Schools Instantly
The Wong’s have helped create hundreds of effective schools and tens of thousands of effective teachers. They helped a school achieve AYP in two years, the first ever for a public school on an Indian reservation. They helped a school in Texas ranked Academically Unacceptable into Exemplary in one year. They helped turn the second lowest achieving school in an urban district from chaos into a safe, nurturing and academic school in one year. The secret is to create a culture of consistency. No theory, no platitudes, no philosophy. This is a session where educators who want to create effective schools will learn how it has been done with as many workable examples as the time allowed will permit. What we share works and has been used by hundreds, if not thousands, of school leaders.
