Learning to Improve


Anthony S. Bryk, Louis M. Gomez, Alicia Grunow, and Paul G. LeMahieu

Using ideas borrowed from improvement science, the authors show how a process of disciplined inquiry can be combined with the use of networks to identify, adapt, and successfully scale up promising interventions in education. Organized around six core principles, the book shows how "networked improvement communities" can bring together researchers and practitioners to accelerate learning in key areas of education.

“Drawing on numerous real life examples and illustrations, the authors demonstrate how to develop and then critically execute good ideas to produce reliably positive outcomes.”
—John Q. Easton, distinguished senior fellow, Spencer Foundation
