Social Justice Resource Schools: A Case Study of a School Effectiveness Strategy.
Harisun, Marelle
This paper traces one example of area support for schools to show how an administrator can initiate school-effectiveness work. The paper describes the implementation of an intervention plan for social justice and improved educational outcomes for aboriginal students, the Social Justice Resource Schools (SJRS) program, which was established in the western area of South Australia. An analysis of the initiation and implementation phases suggests that the program and schools have incorporated all the factors for effective initiation at a satisfactory level. The leadership roles necessary for moving from policy to implementation include building a vision, taking the initiative, empowering participants, procuring funding, and coping with problems. This case study demonstrates that it is possible for an educational administrator to conduct action research on initiating a major policy implementation program, to model the implementation processes, and to facilitate school improvement through action research. One table is included. (LMI)
