From Development to Implementation: Institutional and Political Factors in Establishing Change.
Nunes, Shiho S.
The paper presents some informal observations and conclusions drawn from Hawaii's experience with large-scale implementation of new curricula in music, the arts, English language arts, and science over the past ten years. It summarizes each project's different approach to implementation and discusses briefly a number of common conclusions regarding large-scale approaches, their potential and limitations; institutional willingness for high-risk ventures; factors in school reception to change; the myth of teacher resistance to change; a curriculum-change approach to teacher education; and the essential collaboration of those involved in change. Finally it discusses briefly the role of politics in the Hawaiian educational scene and concludes with the observation that political processes should be openly studied if they are to be harnessed to the service of educational improvement.
