Description

This collection features original essays from international
superstars in the field of educational change. Each “think piece” draws on the
latest knowledge from research, policy and practice to provide important
insights for creating systemic, meaningful reform. The authors directly address
contemporary challenges, misconceptions and failed strategies, while also
offering solutions, ideas and guiding questions for examination.


Reflective of the burgeoning educational change knowledge base,
this book is organised into Parts that explore five lines of inquiry, each of
which offers a brief introduction, situates the thematic discourse and
introduces the chapters contained therein:



  • Part
    I: Emerging Issues in Educational Change examines crosscutting issues that play
    a role in shaping system-level change.

  • Part
    II: Improving Practice profiles strategies that build professional capacity and
    collective inquiry.

  • Part
    III: Equity and Educational Justice critically analyses contextual factors that
    lead to inequitable systems of schooling and considers strategies that promote
    educational justice.

  • Part
    IV: Accountability and Assessment Systems attends to the use of internal and
    external accountability mechanisms as drivers for data-based decision-making.

  • Part
    V: Whole-System Change offers lessons from emerging and established models
    engaged in comprehensive system-level change.


Unique in its breadth of ideas and diversity of voices, Leading Educational Change is
must-reading for education decision-makers on all levels, frontline
practitioners and everyone involved with children and adolescent learning.
