The experiences of those who have tried improving schools over the last 20 years are somewhat sobering. School improvement practised by academics and others in the school effectiveness and school improvement communities has passed through a number of phases, which do indeed show intellectual progress (Hopkins & Reynolds, 2001), and there are some recent formulations of improvement theory and practice that represent an advanced formulation on the past in such areas as system reform at the macro level and networks at the micro level (Hargreaves, 2003; Hopkins, 2007).
