About the eBook

"The ′challenge of change′ is everyone′s favorite phrase these days. And for good reason. Never has the need been greater in education for reform that results in both individual and societal benefits."
—From the Introduction

A cohesive, multi-level approach for sustainable educational reform!

With practical insights and critical analysis, this completely revised edition of The Challenge of School Change sheds new light on the widely discussed topic of school change and analyzes the concept of tri-level reform—school, district, and state/national levels working together to build and strengthen capacity to achieve meaningful change.

Editor Michael Fullan and fellow contributors explore the theories as well as leadership and implementation strategies behind educational reform and address the concerns that have led to the current school change movement. Designed for principals, superintendents, and school board members, this collection

  • Features notable experts, including Richard Elmore, Andy Hargreaves, Elizabeth City, Pedro A. Noguera, Carmel Crévola, Jim Knight, and Ken Leithwood
  • Provides practical implementation examples for tri-level reform
  • Looks at the essential role that hope and emotion play in the change process

Confronting a complex issue with clarity and thoughtfulness, this collection shows educators that successful change efforts are possible in any school environment!
