Continuous Improvement in Schools: Understanding the Practice
Anderson, Stephen; Kumari, Roshni
International Journal of Educational Development, v29 n3 p281-292 May 2009
This article investigates conceptually and practically what it means for schools to engage in the practice of continuous improvement. The analysis draws upon prior research and discussion to predict core elements of the practice of continuous improvement in schools. The predictions are then applied to a case study of continuous improvement efforts in a Pakistani secondary school that was involved in a 10-year school-university school improvement partnership. The article concludes with a set of eight empirically based propositions about the practice of continuous improvement schools.
