Featured Author Profiles
"Just when I thought Vickie Bernhardt could not be more clear and concise--here comes the second edition! This revised edition will no doubt benefit our Educational Leadership faculty and graduate students."
--Andy Pushchak, Program Head and Professor of Educational Leadership, Edinboro University
"We are so happy to have this little data book to support our statewide shift to comprehensive data analysis and continuous school improvement. In our statewide school leadership team trainings, we use Data Analysis for Continuous School Improvement, 3rd Edition, because it is so comprehensive. Data, Data Everywhere is perfect for staff not involved in the leadership training, as it still introduces them to the processes and tools for continuous school improvement."
--Sharon Nakagawa, Administrator, School Transformation Branch, Hawaii Department of Education
"Perhaps more important than explaining the Continuous School Improvement Framework, Data, Data Everywhere is a guide for actually using data when implementing the improvement plan. Far too often such plans (frequently required by state boards of education) are drafted, submitted, and promptly forgotten."
--Alex T. Valencic, MiddleWeb
