How to Change 5000 Schools: A Practical and Positive Approach for Leading Change at Every Level
Levin, Ben
Harvard Education Press
Not long ago, public education in Ontario, Canada, was in deep trouble. Student achievement was stagnating, labor disruptions were rampant, and public satisfaction with the schools was low. In 2003, a new provincial government initiated a series of reforms that embodied a positive, outcome-focused agenda for public education. Today, student outcomes have improved, labor disruption has vanished, and teacher morale is high. In this book, Ben Levin, former deputy minister of education for the province of Ontario, draws on his experience overseeing these and other major systemwide education reforms in Canada and England to set forth a refreshingly positive, pragmatic, and optimistic approach to leading educational change at all levels.
