Abstract

The roads to school system improvement can be rocky. The nature of schools and school systems makes them very difficult to change. These are complex organisation, subject to a range of demands and opportunities from multiple stakeholders - from parents and governments, from local communities and business, from other educational authorities and institutions, and, of course, from their staff and students. Effective educational leaders appreciate this complexity and work with colleagues and other across and beyond their education system to make a positive and meaningful difference. Pathways to School System Improvement is designed for educators with an interest in and responsibility for school system improvement. Drawing on data from two national pilot programs - Principals a Literacy Leaders (PALL) and Leading Aligned Numeracy Development (LAND) - this concise guide outlines effective strategies for implementing system improvement and presents approaches for capitalising on the successes and overcoming the shortcomings of initiative-based reforms.
