Stakeholders I: Community, Community Members
Current thinking suggests that ineffective schools will become effective if they carry out the best practices found in effective schools. In other words, mandating improvements will improve schools. However, combine the balance alignment model with the idea that peoples’ visions determine whether or not they take action.
