A Change Management, Systems Thinking, or Organizational Development Approach to the No Child Left Behind Act
Galloway, Dominique L.
Performance Improvement, v46 n5 p10-16 May-Jun 2007
Problems with implementation of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) can be assessed in light of change management theory. Viewing stakeholders collectively as a corporate entity supports employing change management strategies to make the NCLB work. Examining ways that organizational controls and change management can work together points to possible reasons for the problems NCLB has encountered. Finally, strategies are suggested that may facilitate education reform and also have broad application for human performance technology practice.
