  • Preliminary Report on Quincy Schools and the 7 Habits
    Some of the public schools in Quincy, Illinois, U.S.A. have fully implemented the 7 Habits; others have implemented the 7 Habits "moderately."  We wanted to know what the difference, if any, would be between full and moderate implementers on student performance such as reading and math scores.  We found statistically significant improvement in reading and math scores.  There seemed to be no impact on disciplinary referrals, but there was a positive impact on certain self-reported attitudes of the teaching staff.
