- Baldrige National Quality Program
- Quality Tools
It provides teachers in the classroom with activities to help them get started and actually adapt the processes and tools to their specific work. They will learn how to use PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act) and engage students in Team Projects by using specific Total Quality Tools. These tools are integrated in the text, making it unnecessary to flip back and forth through the book to begin the process. It includes student data collection, and tools templates and examples of surveys for all stakeholders, including parents.
There is Another Way! offers the most concise presentation to date of the connection between the Baldrige framework and Total Quality in the field of education. It features a foreword by Robert A. McKanna, superintendent of schools for Community Consolidated School District 15 in Palatine, Illinois, the 2003 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for Education recipient.
