I read with pleasure how you articulate the issues we deal with in the reform movement. In transitioning ASSET into an organization based on fee for service, our intent is not only to sustain the effort begun through NSF seed funding but to instill in the 34 member districts the need for a continuous improvement infrastructure, specifically through ongoing professional development. As we grow and become more stable, we hope to serve that function with them. It's a marvelous concept (one we learned from industry) and I agree with you that it is very hard to generate within the school systems. What do you see as mechanisms or steps to initiate the concept of the need for continuous improvement in school districts? How can intermediary agencies like ASSET help make it happen?
