10/18/2006

With the help of business management expert Jim Collins, researchers at the Center for the Future of Arizona found that a dozen successful state schools where Latino students had high or steadily rising test scores tended to have strong principals, a stable academic program and teachers who evaluated pupil performance regularly. Collins is preparing a guide to extend his approach to groups in other industries striving to achieve top-notch performance. Fast Company (October 2006)
