Doubling Student Performance...and finding the resources to do it

Doubling Student Performance … and finding the resources to do it (2009, Corwin Press) describes the strategies dozens of districts and schools around the country have used to produce dramatic improvements in student learning (what the book terms doubling performance), the programmatic efforts behind those efforts and their resource needs, and ways resources can be found to fund those programs, including resource reallocation. The ideas and suggestions in the book could guide strategic budget cuts as well as strategic use of any new resources.  The final chapter also shows how all the resources needed can be included in restructured state school finance structures designed to link state funding to ways schools and districts can boost student learning.
