Summary
"In this book the authors explore the position that systemic reform requires addressing the culture of individual schools, and that various reform efforts address school culture in different ways. The chapters advocate that the key to success is the match between the strategy in use and the setting. In the chapters, reforms and their interactions with particular school cultures are explored through fieldwork." "The reader can learn from the cases what it takes to mount and sustain a systemic reform initiative at the school level. The book is intended for teachers, principals, parents, and others as a window into how to think about reform in schools, even as they must comply with the demands of accountability policy."--Jacket
