About Tony

Tony Bryk was a leading figure in the Consortium on Chicago School Research.  Over twenty years the consortium developed a research based framework for dealing with the complexity of school improvement. Central to this was understanding how to make improvement sustainable and scalable. The work involved identifying essential school supports characteristic of improving schools, as measured by student engagement in learning and achievement.  Each of these supports, stimulated by leadership, focus on processes of learning at all levels of the system.

About the Carnegie Foundation and Improvement Science

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has been working to build the capacity of education leaders and practitioners in the use of Improvement Science to address complex educational problems. Improvement Science is a holistic approach which uses disciplined enquiry and analysis to inform ‘on-the-ground’ change efforts, adopting rigorous protocols for testing improvement ideas in practice.  In this way, leaders’ and practitioners’ ‘learning by doing’ accumulates through rapid prototyping, into practical field knowledge capable of producing quality outcomes.
