Data presented provide evidence that Baldrige criteria or integrated management systems (IMS) applied in schools help to improve education. Graphs demonstrate a number of findings comparing student performance in two elementary schools. Results indicate that the more a teacher uses Baldrige principles in the classroom according to a self-completed questionnaire, the greater the percentage of students meeting grade level expectations, and the lower the percentage of children reported for discipline problems.
