Many educational organizations have seen dramatic improvements in overall performance through the use of quality management principles. These schools have seen higher scores from students, more enthusiasm from parents, and increased loyalty from teachers. Despite these amazing results, many more schools are hesitant to use these unfamiliar and often difficult methods without proof of their effectiveness. This is the goal of Successful Applications of Quality Systems in Ku12 Schools, which is a collaboration of a variety of educational experts, each demonstrating the remarkable successes they have seen by implementing quality principles in their schools and school districts. the data and information presented in Successful Applications of Quality Systems in Ku12 Schools will provide K-12 administrators with results and benefits of establishing quality management systems in their schools, and demonstrate why more schools should adopt these practices.
