A Framework for Change: A Broader and Bolder Approach to School Reform


by Ernest Morrell & Pedro Noguera - August 04, 2011

A substantial body of evidence reveals that past reforms have largely failed to improve schools in urban areas. The authors contend that prior efforts failed because they did not address the numerous ways that past research has shown poverty influences student academic outcomes and school performance (Coleman et al., 1966; Rothstein, 2004). The authorís call for a new approach to school improvement, one that draws upon the principles advocated by the Broader and Bolder Approach, and includes: evidence-based instruction, community engagement, and the strategies that have been pursued by the Harlem Childrenís Zone, the Childrenís Aid Society, and a small number of similar efforts that attempt to mitigate the effects of poverty.
