"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!"

"In Recognition vs. Merit Pay Dr. Andrews
has again delivered the right book at the
right time for the K-12 school system."
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
"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 same

"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."
Instructor, Illinois Valley Community College,
"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 have been a waste of time
for many students. American Community colleges
and some universities have undertaken reform
through the creative program of dual-credit.
This program allows 'college ready' students
to take college level classes that secondary
schools also count toward high school
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
The dual-credit / dual-enrollment
movement is one of the most significant
educational innovations to take place over
the past 60 years!
These programs bring secondary schools
and higher education into the same arena in
terms of improving learning opportunities for
secondary (high school) students.

TEACHERS Can Be Fired!
The Quest for Quality
This is a book many did not want published!
However, it was highly encouraged by administrators,
board members, quality teachers at all levels, and
supported by teachers in unions who were unsatisfied
that their poor or lazy teachers were not being put
through a remediation process and/or removed! There
has been a false belief throughout the country that
these teachers cannot be fired. This book has been
