About This Book

This is the most comprehensive School Development overview text ever written. In the first part of the book, Dalin sets the stage for a discussion of how schools can improve in the 21st century by providing a detailed historical review of reform in Europe and North America. He explores the dilemmas faced by decision-makers facing up to pressure for change, and provides world-wde examples of attempts at decentralization. The middle part of the book gives an overview of the theoretical basis for school improvement. It examines whether schools bahave differently from other types of organization. Institutional leadership and management are put under the microscope, with particular emphasis placed on the role of the principal in school improvement. The book concludes with a brilliant analysis of change strategies. It uses practical studies as well as referring back to the contextual framework and theoretical basis provided earlier. Strategies are reviewed on three levels of change: individual, organizational and those which target the entire system. School Development: Theories and Strategies is the culmination of many years' work by one of the acknowledged experts in the field. Its significance for all those who have an interest in furthering educational standards cannot be overestimated.
