|Some literature suggests that cultural change is as important as other kinds of change. |
A school culture may become more cohesive and effective through constructing shared goals
as a whole school, discussing ways to implement goals and reflecting on their strategies and
outcomes along the way. Also, knowing the "first principles" of a reform approach may help members
of a school see the big picture, and ground strategies that they use to bring about reform.
However, without supports such as professional development, time, and principal involvement,
can cultural shifts alone bring about deep, sustaining change?
