Leading Mathematics Reform and the Lost Opportunity
Lamb, Janeen
Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, v12 n2 p32-46 2010
Queensland's primary school teachers have experienced change in every Key Learning Area in the last few years. This avalanche of curriculum reform is set to continue as schools prepare for the imminent release of the Australian national curriculum. This article reports on one school's approach to dealing with this avalanche of curriculum reform. Results indicate lost opportunity for curriculum reform in mathematics as the Principal chose not to prioritise mathematics reform, adopting a managerial or "power-over" approach to school leadership.
