A powerful approach to sustainable school system change that involves all stakeholders!
Changing whole education systems for the better, as measured by student achievement, requires coordinated leadership at the school, community, district, and government levels. Based on Michael Fullan's work with school districts and large systems in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada, this resource lays out a comprehensive action plan for achieving whole system reform.
System-wide reform becomes possible when educational leaders build collective capacity and where individual teachers, schools, and districts are committed to working together to increase their effectiveness, rather than competing against one another. This book examines:
- Successful reform initiatives in the United States and abroad
- Actions and conditions that have ensured traction and sustainability
- Ways to avoid common errors in action, funding, and policy
- New reforms at the national level that can impact learning right now
All Systems Go shows educators what must be done to strip away distractions and move an entire system forward.
