Overview

The change process is described in this text which examines the historical, social and economic influences on education policy reform. Chapters look at cross-cultural experiences of educational change and policy implementation as the authors lead us to an understanding of processes and forces involved. The three themes covered in this volume are: politics and reform; politics into policy and policy implementation; and educational reform phenomena. The authors argue that change takes a predictable format and, once understood, can be directed and managed.; This text is intended to be of interest to those involved in the planning and implementation of change and, along with Volume 2 "Case Studies in Educational Change", point the way to effective management of such change processes.

Educators and academics share insights on the forces at work during the present educational reform era in the US and the UK, in essays grouped in sections on the relationships between politics and educational reform, policy implementation, and perspectives on education-reform phenomena. They discuss curriculum reform and the neo- corporatist state in Australia and national curriculum assessment in England and Wales, and compare the policy contexts of reform in Australia, Great Britain, and the US.
