Professor Bryk was a leading figure in the Consortium on Chicago School Research. Over twenty years the consortium developed a research based framework for dealing with the complexity of school improvement. Central to this was understanding how to make improvement sustainable and scalable. The work involved identifying essential school supports characteristic of improving schools, as measured by student engagement in learning and achievement. Each of these supports, stimulated by leadership, focus on processes of learning at all levels of the system.
