Schools are not what they used to be because our society is not what it used to be. The articles appearing here discuss ways that schools can supply future societal need. The articles include: (1) "The Educational Quality Improvement Process Model" (David G. Burgess); (2) "Total Quality Management: How It Works in Schools" (Yvonne V. Thayer); (3) "Skills for Success in the 21st Century: A Developmental School Counseling Program" (Nancy S. Perry); (4) "A Quality Approach to Career Development" (Rebecca Dedmond and others); (5) "The Principal-Counselor Relationship in a Quality High School" (Deborah E. Cooper and Susan B. Sheffield); (6) "A Practical Group Counseling Model" (Dorothy J. Scrivner Blum); (7) "Integrated Learning Units" (Charlotte Murrow Taylor; (8) "A Crisis Intervention Team Model" (Carolyn S. Graham and others); (9) "School-Based Assistance Teams" (Leslie S. Kaplan); (10) "The Teacher Advisor Program" (Robert D. Murick and Andrew K. Tobias); (11) "Tomorrow's Leaders Helping Today: Peer Programs" (Sandra Peyser Hazouri and Miriam Smith McLaughlin); (12) "Mentoring Programs" (Patricia G. Henderson); and (13) "Telling and Selling Customer Satisfaction: Advocacy" (Rosalie S. Humphrey and Judi A. Myer). The essays were assembled with three goals in mind: (1) provide a model for implementing the principles of Total Quality Management (TQM); (2) show how providing quality school counseling programs will benefit all children and facilitate restructuring of schools into quality organizations; and (3) provide the professional school counselor with practical ideas and strategies to assume leadership roles within the school. To show what TQM looks like in education, the Educational Quality Improvement Process Model (EQUIP) is presented. The book is organized around the four components of the EQUIP model: want, believe, know, do. Part One explains EQUIP in the context of what schools should want. Part Two outlines TQM and gives examples of how this approach is used today. In Part Three, an infusion model of career development is presented and Part Four provides practical approaches for implementing TQM in the school. The examples should help school counselors develop a team-approach to quality counseling that is integrated into the central purposes of the school. (RJM)
