Project on Social Architecture in Education. Final Report. Part IV: Conclusions. Chapter 10: Reflections on the Case Studies. Chapter 11: Implications and Advice.
Miles, Matthew B.; And Others
This document contains the concluding chapters of the final report on the Project on Social Architecture in Education. Chapter 10 reviews the case studies and begins with some comments on the question of implementation success, both ultimate and intermediate. The discussion then moves to each of the six basic primary tasks--political stabilization, knowledge utilization, vision development, social-architectural design, actualization, and institutionalization--assessing how the tasks were, in general, approached. The chapter concludes with some discussion of the planning/implementation group capabilities that seemed critical for success. Chapter 11 offers some possible lessons that may be useful for several different audiences: those planning and implementing new schools; those supplying funds for such efforts; those aiding or facilitating such efforts; and students and researchers of the educational change process.
