Abstract

The implementation of Partnerships 21 precipitated wide-ranging and profound changes in the policy, organisational and cultural dimensions of the public education system in South Australia.. In particular two state wide surveys were conducted at the end of the first 6 months of its operation and then at the end of the first year. The results of these two surveys were reported back to all sites and it is the opinions of site leaders expressed in the resulting documents that form the research basis of this paper.
