About the Author

Alan Bain is associate professor of inclusive education at Charles Sturt University, Australia, and an international consultant to schools, education systems and industry on technology integration and school reform.


The Self-Organizing School is unique in providing a comprehensive, research-driven approach to systemic, site-based school reform-an approach that successfully melds the theoretical with the practical. Bain understands the realities and challenges from a principal's perspective and embeds his detailed study in the examples of real experience drawn from an 11-year school reform process. Cogent in its advice and a compelling read, The Self-Organizing School is a must for all school leaders committed to effecting real, transformational change in today's demanding educational context. -- Simon Gipson, principal, St. Michael's Grammar School, Melbourne, Australia
The Self-Organizing School shows what it takes to sustain and scale technology-driven school reform. This book captures the scope and the process from theory to practice and includes essential understandings for anyone interested in large scale change in education. -- Angus S. King Jr., governor of Maine, 1995-2003
The Self-Organizing School places technology where it belongs in school reform-at the heart of what students and teachers do in classrooms every day. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in school change and the role technology can play in making educational reform deep, meaningful and sustainable. -- Mark Weston, education strategist, Dell, Inc.
