Schools for Change: A Perspective on School Improvement in Pakistan
Riaz, Ismat
Improving Schools, v11 n2 p143-156 2008
This article focuses on the deeply unsatisfactory state of public and private schooling in a developing country, Pakistan, and the half-hearted measures employed at improving these schools. In the process, the author explores the negative aspects of the ways in which change has been effected in the country's education system and why these reasons have failed to produce the required results. The "change" factor in education has its own dynamics, and these are highlighted in relation to how change can be brought about in Pakistan's failing school system. Solutions need to be system-wide and then painstakingly monitored and allowed to take hold for any viable improvement to take place.
