Suggestions are constantly being made, both in the popular media and academic literature, about the kinds of changes schools should make. The research in this text shows that schools are primarily inward-looking organizations, and would benefit from better ways of understanding the changes surrounding them and the pressures on them. This text offers theoretical discussion of the ideas around the topic and a set of suggestions for thinking about them.
Table of Contents

'The book is thus intended to assist educators in reflecting on the 'big picture' by balancing the conclusions of research literature with interview data ... I welcomed the way in which the authors artfully combined theoretical literature with qualitative research in an informed and readable manner.' - Journal of Curriculum Studies Vol 31:2 1999
