“Our districtwide success in improving student academic achievement has been a remarkable journey. Learning by Doing has been our road atlas and the PLC concept our GPS as our staff members have built their collective capacity to meet the needs of all students.”
—Sandra Thorstenson, superintendent, Whittier Union High School District, Whittier, CA
“Learning by Doing is not only the title of an incredibly powerful book, it is also the description of our districts journey over the last five years. Without a doubt, the establishment of PLCs as a district and the deepening of our collaborative culture have had the single greatest impact on student achievement of any of the initiatives we have implemented. It has changed who we are, how we work and, most importantly, our outcomes. Learning by Doing has been our guidebook on the journey and helped us to understand and move from knowing to doing and finally being a professional learning community. I encourage you, read this book and answer the call to action. Once you begin the journey, you will never go back!”
—Marcus Johnson, superintendent, Sanger Unified School District, Sanger, CA
