State and district guidelines for school improvement planning are focusing too heavily on standards and results-oriented improvements instead of promoting systemic changes to address barriers to teaching and learning, concludes a report from the Center for Mental Health in Schools at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The report recommends that future planning guidelines develop more programs to engage failing or at-risk students, increase community and parental involvement, reduce school absences, and bolster character education.
