A New Direction for Educational Reforms in the 21st Century: Hong Kong and International Contexts.
Cheng, Yin Cheong
Many educational reforms that have focused on fragmentary improvement and remedial treatment did not lead to long-term effectiveness. This paper examines a new direction for educational reforms in Hong Kong and other international contexts. The new direction should include the following 10 tendencies: (1) toward multiple school functions from simplistic purposes; (2) toward school autonomy and self-initiative through school-based management; (3) toward schools' healthy functioning through a knowledge-based profile; (4) toward schools' continuous learning and development through strategic management; (5) toward human initiative through multilevel self-management in school; (6) toward schools' multiple effectiveness through a dynamic process; (7) toward holistic education through layer management; (8) toward synergy and effectiveness through congruence in school; (9) toward total home-school collaboration and community support for resources, ideas, and legitimacy; and (10) toward school momentum through transformational leadership. Six tables and four figures are included. (Contains 61 references.) (LMI)
