School Boards in the Governance Process
This book analyses local school district governance in a comparative, cross-cultural perspective based on national studies of local school boards in the Nordic countries, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The overarching research question explored by the national studies contained in this volume is: How are transnational influences of standardization and accountability, alongside national policies, transformed into local policy cultures by the school boards? In all the Nordic countries, the municipalities are equivalent with the school district level, and municipalities, as such, play a role as the interface between state policies and the schools. This book discusses the variation across different national systems in the Nordic countries in the degree of decentralism, as well as the processes through which sources of political autonomy are put into practice by school boards. It explores the interplay between context and policy-making at the local level, and analyses how local discourses expressed by school boards differ from national policies and trans-national influences. The book's analysis of the country-cases and thematic chapters shows that there are both important similarities and significant differences in governance functions, power relations and understandings of school board chairs and members between the countries studied. Moreover, the book analyses the many ways in which these similarities and differences affect the work context of school leaders and teachers in the Nordic countries.

Creating Professional Development That Works: What Every Teacher Educator Needs to Know
Many inservice teacher educators are experienced classroom teachers; however, they have little-if any-formal training in the design of professional development. As a result, they are likely to use an unintentional design process to create professional development that conflicts with what research has found to be effective, and lacks the capacity to change deeply held pre-existing beliefs, attitudes, and assumptions of inservice teachers. This book provides inservice teacher educators with a design process developed especially for them, in-depth knowledge of the research foundation of the process, and the confidence to use that process effectively. This book will provide a comprehensive view of the relationship between the effectiveness of professional development and its design.

Doing Educational Administration: A Theory of Administrative Practice
Doing Educational Administration is the final part in a three volume series by Evers and Lakomski presenting their perspective on educational administration. The first volume, Knowing Educational Administration , established the importance of epistemological issues in the international field of educational administration and suggested a new, post-positivist approach to research. The theoretical approach presented in the first volume was further examined in Exploring Educational Administration , where the authors' theories were considered in an applied context. In this, the third and final volume, the authors conclude their presentation of their post-positivist theory by demonstrating how their account of knowledge and cognition shapes the content and structure of administrative practice. Built around a set of basic issues in the practice of educational administration where the role of condition is of primary importance, Evers and Lakomski produce a comprehensive and persuasive applied theory of administrative practice.

Improving Educational Performance: Local and Systemic Reforms
Improving Educational Performance: Local and Systematic Reforms , Volume 5 of the series published in 1997, examines improvement of educational performance through state and local reform efforts and through increases in school choice opportunities. Researchers present operational frameworks that address the perceived failure of public schools to provide high levels of student academic performance. These frameworks included measurement, motivation, and accountability in local school districts; state-driven systemic reform of curriculum standards; and accountability through school choice and school-centered reform. Perspectives presented on accountability and educational performance compare the effects of centralized governance and local authority, examine the relative benefits and adverse effects of state government and market competition on school operations, and review the tensions between professional and community control of instruction and assessment.

There are many individuals who have the technical proficiencies and are administratively competent, but they do not possess the political skills needed to succeed. Political influence is frequently learned on the job, and the process is a long one. By adding the political element, this work goes beyond the normal coursework taught in MPA and related programs. This collection can be used throughout the MPA program in a number of courses, including Public Policy Analysis, Personal Administration, and Seminar of Public Administration.

Breaking Through to Effective Teaching: A Walk-Through Protocol Linking Student Learning and Professional Practice
School leaders search for effective and practical ways to live out what research tells us makes a difference in student learning. Research literature is easy to embrace theoretically, but it is much more difficult to turn research into compelling collective action. How do we create the climate where the trusting members of a 'professional learning community' improve the results of their practice? What does it take to be the 'small learning community' that includes students and parents as well as professional educators? What will we do to harness the positive power of 'community' to transform the learning and achievement of all students? This walk-through protocol provides both a process and a tool for inquiry-based professional development, community engagement, and ultimately, student self-direction. It starts with a school's commitment to build an inquiry model that assumes the capacity for extraordinary learning on the part of students, teachers, administrators, and families. The protocol can be employed narrowly_to guide the improving practice of a couple of teachers with a passion for biology, for example_or more broadly. Many of the improving schools highlighted in the chapters of this book chose the walk-through protocol as a frame for school-wide professional development that led to exceptional growth in learning and student achievement. This process allows schools to create a community where all members approach learning as an inquiry and are proactive designers of their success.

East Asian Institute, The: A Goh Keng Swee Legacy
This book record achievements of the East Asian Institute (EAI), one of the top five think tanks in Asia under the leadership of Dr Goh Keng Swee, Professors Wang Gungwu, John Wong and Zheng Yongnian.The hard work behind the nurturing of this institute is sometimes invisible, unwritten and under-appreciated but the contributions and results are clear and relevant to the scholarly world. The works of EAI's originating guardians as well as the future endeavours of its current directorship thus need to be chronicled for future generations of scholars to learn from this intellectual experience of managing an institution as complex as EAI.The detailed historiography of EAI in this publication represents the multiple histories of EAI, China's developmental path since the initiation of market reforms as well as Singapore's collaborative interface with China's development.
