I wonder if the Project Management Triangle can also be applied to school improvement? For example I have seen schools grow very quickly without a lot of investment both in human resources and in infrastructure, but there has been a definite decline in quality/morale. I've also seen schools develop and become better in a very short time, but it has been at a huge cost in both new buildings and in professional development. What do you think? Do you think that schools can improve and focus on all 3 of these at the same time? Can they improve in a short time without a huge investment? Could the investment actually be a human one? Could teachers in a school decide that in a short period - maybe one or two years - that they will take advantage of the amazing amount of free professional development that is available - sometime from within the establishment itself - in order to change mindsets and really move forward? I think it is possible. Do you?
