Changing Our Schools: Implementing Successful Educational Reform. Lessons in Learning
Canadian Council on Learning
Large-scale educational reform--systemic approaches to changing the way schools operate--helps to meet students' learning needs more effectively. These approaches focus on reorganizing entire school systems, rather than implementing individual school-improvement initiatives. Such reforms require a significant investment of resources and--if unsuccessful-- risk wasting students' and teachers' time and damaging learning outcomes. Thus, what lessons can be drawn from previous attempts at educational reform, and how can these help shape future reform efforts in Canada? This paper presents examples of educational reform programs around the world.
