Impediments to Scaling Up Effective Comprehensive School Reform Models

Engelmann, S.; Engelmann, K.
Abstract:
In this article, Engelmann and Engelmann discuss the various problems involved with scaling up comprehensive school reform models in order to reverse the failure of schools to educate all students. Their identification of problems and solutions are based on their experiences implementing the Direct Instruction model of comprehensive school reform. The authors focus on three main issues; the relationship between the characteristics of a design and the ease of scaling up the design, patterns of scaling up those designs, and common obstacles to reform found in school districts. Additionally, the design and theories behind the Direct Instruction model are discussed as well as their experiences in implementing the model.
