The School Improvement Program in Victoria, or, How to Play the New Game.
Macpherson, R. J. S.
This article traces the development and rationale of the School Improvement Program proposed by the new Labor Government of Victoria (Australia). The program would be based on school communities, each voluntarily developing a long-term project improving the school as an educational entity. The design assumptions, funding criteria, and implications for educational administrators at state, regional, and school levels are clarified. The fundamental ideological commitment appears to be the democratization of school governance, management, and development. Success in the new game is characterized as adaptation to a changed ideological milieu, intensive political role-learning, accommodation of interests, and the need to create personal power bases.
