Quality in Primary and Secondary Education

Why Quality in Education?

We are all interested in quality in education. The future of our country and the world depends on our children and college students receiving the best instruction.

Using the framework of quality in our school districts, we can design roadmaps for continuous improvement. When educators understand what continuous improvement is all about, they gain confidence that they can shape and alter the nature of their schools. Change is possible!

During National Engineers Week, February 14–20, ASQ invites K-12 educators to bring an ASQ engineer into the classroom to promote engineering as a career.
