摘要

「優質學校改進計劃」是個大學與學校夥伴協作計劃,自1998年起一直給予中、小學全面專業支援,目的是整體學校改進。2000年,教育統籌委員會發表了《香港教育制度改革建議》,在充滿理想的改革原則策動下,中、小學教育及課程有明顯改變,但在推行及實踐各樣改革時,教與學的實際困境亦一一浮現。本文以香港「優質學校改進計劃」下的學校個案,探討學校領導為何在由上而下的改革浪潮下,引進大學專業人員的知識及實踐經驗,並從學校領導的視角,探索「計劃」在學校教育的不同層面所起的作用。

關鍵詞:學校改進;夥伴協作;教育改革

Abstract

Quality School Improvement Project (QSIP) is a university-school partnership program for comprehensive school improvement. Since 1998, QSIP has provided holistic professional support to primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong. In 2000, Education Commission published the Reform Proposals for the Education System in Hong Kong to outline some desirable education reform principles and proposals for schools. Following the reform principles, school education system and curriculum have some remarkable changes. When implementing the various education reforms, challenges and difficulties have also surfaced in the teaching and learning environment in schools. This article reviews why school leaders introduce QSIP into their school reform environment and how the professional supports from QSIP have influenced school education in different levels from school leaders’ perspectives.
