Learning Journeys in Schools

As a field, education has largely failed to learn from experience. Time after time, promising education reforms fall short of their goals and are abandoned as other promising ideas take their place…Rather than “implementing fast and learning slow” ….. educators should adopt a more rigorous approach to improvement that allows the field to “learn fast to implement well.”
