"The debate he
(Hans Andrews) puts forward
is perennially valid and

highly relevant in the
Australian education
landscape. A school’s
in this case its teachers,
need to feel appreciated

important to the school”

"I commend Andrews' Recognition vs.
Merit Pay to anyone interested    in
improving teaching and learning.    His
findings are always the same:  teacher
recognition programs provide more bang
for the buck
than merit pay!"
Dr. Gary Davis, former Director
of the Illinois Community Colleges
Trustees Association, USA
"In Recognition vs. Merit Pay Dr. Andrews
has again delivered the right book at the
right time for the K-12 school system."
Marilyn Holt, Superintendent, East Richland
Community Unit #1,
Olney, Illinois, USA

"An appealing characteristic of Andrews'
style of authorship is the way he
intertwines past and current research,
testimonials and examples from schools
across different countries with his
effortless attempts at commending good
recognition programs."
Michelle Attard Tonna, Reviewer for Malta
Review Educational Research Journal

"I found Andrews' work an
excellent analysis of the enormous
international challenge facing
governments on a global stage.  
Recognition vs. Merit Pay has touched a
nerve within me and I believe it will do the
to you."
Tony Richardson, Dip. T.B.Ed., B.A., M.Ed.,
Queensland, Australia
"The Faculty Excellence Award I received
feels like a celebration of some of the toll
teachers and their families pay.  For me, it
was important to share this recognition
with my family, friends, and my teachers.  
I could feel their pride in my success."
Koshu Jagasia, Instructor, Illinois
Valley Community College,
Illinois, USA
"Andrews clearly explains how teacher
evaluation and recognition are critical
strategies in ensuring student success
and positive outcomes.  This book should
be of interest to all educators, governing
boards, government officials and parents."

  The Dual-Credit Phenomenon

             This is the only comprehensive book
                written on this important program
                spreading quickly across America.

                            Many critics of the secondary school
                  system in America had suggested the last two
                  years of high school are a  waste of  time of                   
                  many  students.  American Community colleges
                  and some universities have undertaken reform
                  through the creative program of dual credit.  

                         This program allows bright students to  
                  take college level classes that secondary
                  schools also now count toward high school
                  diploma completion.  Technical  and  Career  
                  Education  programs are now shifting in large
                  numbers to the "dual-credit" option and away
                 from the articulated and college credit in
                  escrow options

                         The  dual-credit / dual-enrollment
                  movement is one of the most  significant  
                  educational  innovations to take place over
                  the past 60 years!   It  brings secondary schools
                  and higher education into the same arena in
                  terms of improving learning opportunities for
                  secondary  (high school) students.
