Public School Reform: Policy Talk and Institutional Practice.
Tyack, David
American Journal of Education, v100 n1 p1-19 Nov 1991
This essay explores the complex relationship between policy talk and institutional change in educational reform. Bursts of reform rhetoric must be distinguished from long-term trends in educational practice. The case study of a comprehensive reform effort helps illustrate why some kinds of reform last and others do not. (SLD)
