Leveraging Change in State Education Systems

Dean Fixsen, Karen Blase, Barbara Sims, Caryn Ward
The uniqueness of education units from states to classrooms presents a challenge for implementation-informed approaches to using effective innovations to produce marked improvements in student outcomes. Education is an interaction-based profession. Education systems produce important outcomes that are the product of teachers interacting with students in education settings. If the adults don't teach, the children don't learn at an acceptable rate.
