Policy Transfer and Educational Change

Policy Transfer and Educational Change

First Edition

May 2016 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Improving education through policy learning is an important notion for countries in need of educational reform. However, identifying a successful set of practices and transferring them from one national setting to another is a complex exercise. Drawing from their extensive experience, the authors explore a single case study of policy transfer in India, demonstrating how and under what conditions educational reforms can be put into practice successfully and sustainably.

Coverage includes:

·         Policy Learning

·         Inclusive Practices

·         School Autonomy and School Leadership

·         India and its system of education

This book offers a unique, international perspective on educational reform and is a useful resource for teachers, policy makers and postgraduate level students.

An excellent resource for students to begin to comprehend the complexities of policy change and the impact this has upon the education sector, and individual settings.

Allthough it is an interesting case study it isn´t completely appropriate regarding the curriculum quite well. Some more references (e.g. in chapter four) would be helpful. Successful are the links between the theoretical aspects and India's educational system.

This book will provide a useful case study that illustrates how problematic it is to simply transfer successful policy from one national context to another.
