Reforming Schools: A Case Study of New Basics in a Primary School
Jorgensen, Robyn; Walsh, Lynne; Niesche, Richard
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v12 n2 p115-133 Apr 2009
Reforming schools is a challenging aspect of contemporary education. The role of leadership within reform agendas is critical. This article presents a case study of one school that has been highly successful in the implementation of this reform. The processes employed by the school at various levels demonstrate the ways in which effective leadership enabled successful reform to be embraced by the school teams. In this school a model of devolved leadership enabled the reform to be successful at multiple levels of school implementation. This successful model has implications for school reform and funding models. (Contains 3 tables and 3 notes.)
