Abstract

This chapter looks back on Improving the Quality of Education for All (IQEA) school improvement programme that has been operating in Hong Kong for almost 4 years. It outlines the rationale for the improvement model and explains the assumptions about how schools improve that underpin this model. It considers some of the features of the Hong Kong school system that shape the context for improvement efforts and gives examples showing how two of the schools in the programme have developed their improvement work in the school. Finally, it offers some reflections on how the programme is influencing the attitudes and practice of teachers and school principals.
