Change Forces: Probing the Depths of Educational Reform

By Michael Fullan
Change Forces is a radically different book on educational reform. It tackles head-on the non-linear and chaotic nature of the forces of change at all levels of society. It shows why we need a new mind-set for contending with the real complexity of dynamic and continous change. Ultimately, Change Forces provides clarity and insights for understanding and coping with the seemingly intractable problems of educational reform.

Change Forces debunks many of the current myths about the roles of vision and strategic planning, site-based management, strong leadership, consensus and accountability. Drawing on research from successful organizations in business as well as in educational systems, Change Forces identifies eight basic lessons about why change is seemingly chaotic and what to do about it. The book brings together the moral purpose of education to produce better citizens regardless of class, gender and ethnicity, and the skills of change necessary for individuals, and systems to contend successfully with the forces of change.

Written in a clear, lively manner Change Forces is a fascinating and intriguing journey. It unravels many of the mysteries of why and how educational reform is inevitably a matter of reconciling the forces of chaos and order as they interact in dynamically complex ways.

"My eCoach has proved to be a simple and easy to use resource for designing websites for various lesson topics. Before I was introduced to My eCoach, I had no prior knowledge on how to design a website. Now that I have a membership to it, I know that I can quickly log-on to design a website where I can post resources, weblinks, documents, images, video/audio samples, etc.

My students have greatly enjoyed working on the websites that I’ve created (little do they know how easily I was able to make them because of the "Clone this" feature). They especially appreciate the fact that they can leave comments on the pages. And what’s great is that I can monitor each of the comments before I allow them to be published."
