Australia's Grand Experiment: School Reform and the National Schools Project.
Louden, William; Wallace, John
International Journal of Educational Reform, v6 n3 p266-73 Jul 1997
Australia's National Schools Project tried to facilitate restructuring by abolishing, bending, or breaking the rules that prevented schools from improving student outcomes. Since 1992, the 50-school project has expanded to over 200 sites. An evaluation of three NSP schools identifies barriers (cultural resistance and structural complexity) and motivators (change as fundamental and hybrid implementation opportunities).
