The teleconference, entitled "Creating a Framework for High-Achieving Schools," focuses on the implementation of Baldrige principles in the educational arena. Although Baldrige principles are not new in the business world, they are nothing short of revolutionary in education. The goal of this teleconference is to get the word out about how successful these initiatives are in the hopes that other school administrators, legislators and teachers will replicate them. The teleconference begins a yearlong program that will include four regional field hearings to examine promising practices in education, an in-depth assessment of education reform data and a year-ending teleconference.
