Abstract:

In education, the term restructuring is as notable for its ambiguity as for its meaning. This book draws from more than 600 sources across a wide spectrum of perspectives regarding restructuring. It provides a picture of many of the trends and issues in school restructuring and attempts to place these issues into a context that helps explain where schools have come from and where they might be going. The book is designed to help faculties develop their vision of restructuring and their strategies for pursuing the process of restructuring. The book is organized into four major parts. Part 1, "Rationale and Context," presents a historical context within which restructuring can be considered, as well as a summary of the current motivations for and implications of educational restructuring. Part 2, "Changing Roles and Responsibilities," examines the evolution of new roles for essentially all the groups that participate in public education directly or indirectly. The third part, "Dimensions of Restructuring," explores the concepts of incremental and discontinuous change and then discusses current activities in school restructuring along 12 dimensions--learning standards, curriculum, instruction, assessment, learning environment, technology, school-community relationship, teaching and learning time, governance, teacher and principal leadership, personnel structures, and contractual relationships. Part 4, "Process of Restructuring," captures the lessons being learned about the process of restructuring schools and presents examples of strategies and techniques for restructuring. Two figures and subject and author indices are included. (Contains over 600 references.) (Lmi).
