Systemic Reform: Perspectives on Personalizing Education.
Anson, Ronald J., Ed.
The eight papers collected here bring to bear a complex set of perspectives on a common problem: how to make education more effective now and in the future. The papers speak to the need to understand education as an individual-driven, learner-centered activity. Following Ronald J. Anson's introduction called "Personalizing Systemic Reform," the papers include the following: (1) "Coordinating Top-Down and Bottom-Up Strategies for Educational Reform" (Michael G. Fullan); (2) "Change Has Changed: Implications for Implementation of Assessments from the Organizational Change Literature" (Suzanne M. Stiegelbauer); (3) "Time for Teachers in School Restructuring" (Joseph Cambone); (4) "New Boundaries for School-Based Management: The High Involvement Model" (Priscilla Wohlstetter, Roxane Smyer, and Susan Albers Mohrman); (5) "Teachers' Professional Development in a Climate of Educational Reform" (Judith Warren Little); (6) "Realizing the Promise of Technology: The Need for Systemic Reform" (Jane L. David); (7) "Bringing Schools and Communities Together in Preparation for the 21st Century: Implications of the Current Educational Reform Movement for Family and Community Involvement Policies" (Patrick M. Shields); and (8) "Research Knowledge and Policy Issues in Cultural Diversity and Education" (Roland G. Tharp). References accompany each chapter. (LMI)
