American School Reform synopsis
By interpreting twenty years of educational policy in the largest cities in the United States, the US SchoolReform Program offers one of the most visible assessments of schoolreform, as in our modern history. Joseph B.
Macdonald and his colleagues challenged Anenberg's $ 1 billion challenge, launched in 1994, along with numerous large-scale reform efforts in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and the San Francisco Bay Area. They look deeply into what schoolreform really is, how it works, how it fails, and what differences can happen.
MacDonald and his colleagues put together many interrelated ideas in what they call the workspace theory. Education policy is often repeated to the extent that its implementation becomes almost impossible.
However, the work space is what emerges when gifted teachers, leaders, and reformers direct social capital to civilian leaders, and the financial capital of governments, institutions, corporations, and other supporters to achieve real results.
