The change process is immensely complex. It is a journey, not a blueprint. How we make that journey in the present should be informed by our experiences in the past. This book takes the reader through that journey, traversing the stages of initiation, design, development, implementation, institutionalization of curriculum innovations in schools in several Commonwealth Caribbean countries. Through an analysis of the problems experienced at the various stages the author distils broader insights into the dynamics of curriculum change which bears significance not just for the Commonwealth Caribbean but for all developing countries with similar characteristics. The author proposes ten drivers for change to guide future action and eight challenges for 'doing change differently'. As a source of information for teachers, principals, education planners and other stakeholders involved in curriculum change, this book is invaluable.
