Synopsis: Provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive review of contemporary research in education policy implementation.
From the Back Cover:
A companion to Allan R. Odden’s Education Policy Implementation, also published by SUNY Press, this book presents original work by a new generation of scholars contributing to education policy implementation research. The contributors define education policy implementation as the product of the interaction among particular policies, people, and places. Their analyses of previous generations of implementation research reveal that contemporary findings not only build directly on lessons learned from the past, but also seek to deepen past findings. These contemporary researchers also break from the past by seeking a more nuanced, contingent, and rigorous theory-based explication of how implementation unfolds. They argue that researchers and practitioners can help improve education policy implementation by not asking simply what works, but rather focusing their attention on what works, for whom, where, when, and why.
"Meredith Honig has provided the education policy community with a gem. The beginning and ending chapters provide both context and synthesis of the state of the art of education policy implementation, and the intervening chapters each address important aspects of this issue, all noting the ambitiousness of policy goals and thus the complexity of policy implementation. This is a book for policymakers, policy scholars, and education leaders and practitioners." — Allan R. Odden, editor of Education Policy Implementation
"All who have a part in shaping education policy should read this book. Complexity is the basic reality, and this book is an excellent primer for understanding its implications. Those who have responsibility for dealing with operational realities will find it a useful guide through the complicated terrain they must navigate." — Clarence N. Stone, coauthor of Building Civic Capacity: The Politics of Reforming Urban Schools
