Changing the school culture
How do schools change? What do we know about the change process? Does the individual school have the capacity to change - and under what conditions? This book, based on research carried out at the Oslo-based international school improvement programme, IMTEC, poses, debates and answers all these questions. It promotes the Institutional Development Programme (IDP) - tested for over 15 years in several countries - which is a revolutionary change strategy for schools. Dalin examines thoroughly how it can be adapted in creative ways, with insight, to the particular needs of the school context.
