`Because of its comprehensive scope, this guidebook can be a single tool for designing and implementing focus groups in schools' Patricia A All, Assistant Superintendent Olathe District Schools Olathe, Kanas



Focus groups of parents, students, community members, or teachers can be an effective means of gaining support for school decisions, for modifying programmes, and for conducting research. Yet most administrators don't have a clue about designing and running an effective focus group, much less how to ensure they're gathering valid and reliable information.





Drawing on focus group methodology, this book uses educational examples, guidelines, and step-by-step guidance to help administrators utilize this powerful qualitative research tool.

"This is truly an amazing resource for anyone using - or thinking of using - focus groups for any sort of decision making in educational organizations...a blueprint for success." -- Richard Keaster, Professor & Chair "Because of its comprehensive scope, this guidebook can be a single tool for designing and implementing focus groups in schools." -- Patricia A. All
