With practical insights, powerful observations, and critical analysis, this collection makes the widely discussed topic of school change accessible to all readers. Editor Michael Fullan, author of The New Meaning of Educational Change, brings together articles and essays that explore the theories, leadership, and implementation strategies behind the never-ending journey of educational reform. Contributors such as Richard Elmore, Andy Hargreaves, Pedro A. Noguera, Carmel Crévola, Elizabeth City, Jim Knight, and Ken Leithwood address the problems that have led to the school change movement and offer solutions and proposals for reform. The articles provide not only practical implementation examples involving schools and communities, but also a look at the essential role hope and emotion play in the change process. Each essay provides fresh insights, such as the importance of establishing collaborative work cultures and the need for professional learning communities, that, when taken as a whole, introduce a new mindset for understanding change. This second edition of The Challenge of School Change sheds new light on educational reform and offers important ideas about how change happens and how it is sustained. Fullan's collection confronts a complex issue with clarity and thoughtfulness and reminds teachers, administrators, principals, and parents that if they are up to the challenge, successful change efforts are possible in any school environment.
