"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 same
to you."

"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

                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 h
ave been a  waste of  time
for many  students.  American Community colleges
                 and some universities have undertaken reform
                 through the creative program of dual

                        This program allows
'college ready' students
                 to take college level classes that secondary
                 schools also 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!  

                       These programs
 bring secondary schools
                 and higher education into the same arena in
                 terms of improving learning opportunities for
                 secondary  (high school) students.
