Cognition and Policy Implementation: District Policymakers and the Reform of Mathematics Education.
Spillane, James P.
Cognition and Instruction, v18 n2 p141-79 2000
Explores school districts' responses to recent mathematics reforms. Notes that district leaders' understanding focused on piecemeal changes that often miss the disciplinary particular of the reform. Advocates inclusion of implementers' interpretation of the reform message with more conventional variables, such as local resistance to reform and limited local capacity, that dominate the literature on models of the implementation process.
