Areas of Focus:
This collection features original essays from international superstars, including SCOPE scholar Ann Lieberman, in the field of educational change. Each "think piece" draws on the latest knowledge from research, policy, and practice to provide important insights for creating systemic, meaningful reform. The authors directly address contemporary challenges, misconceptions, and failed strategies, while also offering solutions, ideas, and guiding questions for examination. Unique in its breadth of ideas and diversity of voices, Leading Educational Change is a must-read for education decisionmakers on all levels, frontline practitioners, and everyone involved with children and adolescent learning.
A new book, Global Education Reform: How Privatization and Public Investment Influence Education Outcomes, provides a powerful analysis of these different ends of an ideological spectrum – from market-based experiments to strong state investments in public education.
