Develop equity, excellence, and well-being across the whole system! The world is troubled!

We need to combine a moral imperative and a system transformation to survive for the better. Education is crucial to our future but needs to play a more direct role in shaping our future. The Devil is in the Details shows how we can re-think the education system and its three levels of leadership—local, middle, and top—so that each level can contribute to dramatic turnaround for education and society. The focus is on examining details to ensure effective actions are taken, rather than assuming large pronouncements and policies will drive change. Readers will find:

• Details and analysis about successful systems in California, Ontario, and Australia
• Ideas for how leaders at all levels can take steps to begin
• Vignettes, actions and strategies that illustrate how to address equity, excellence and well-being

With the goal of transforming the culture of learning to develop greater equity, excellence, and student wellbeing, this book will help you liberate the system and maintain focus.

By taking both bird's eye and ground-level view of systemic change, Michael Fullan and Mary Jean Gallagher offer trenchant insights into why a relentless torrent of top-down policies have failed to transform education systems and why countless grassroots, transformative solutions have failed to take root and spread across the system. Drawing upon research and real-world experiences, Fullan and Gallagher show us a way forward, one that encourages leaders at all levels of the system to start with the details—small moves that can transform students’ daily learning experiences—and build improvement plans and education policies up from there. Anyone who shares Fullan and Gallagher’s sense of urgency for providing students with opportunities for deeper learning would do well to read and apply the lessons from this book.

UCLA Graduate School of Education & Informational Studies

This important new book provides clear guidance to schools and districts on how to pursue equity and excellence through connected autonomy; a strategy aimed at supporting schools through collaboration and capacity building.  The authors present several concrete examples to show how such a strategy is working in some schools already.  They argue that we have a moral imperative to make sure that other schools adopt such an approach.  Given the challenges that educators must take on to prepare young people for an increasingly uncertain future, I couldn't agree more.  

Interested in where to go next in education? Then read this book. Fullan and Gallagher are seized with the bigger challenges confronting humanity and rightly make the case for our schools to lead the way forward. More than that, they give us the roadmap. Finally, some genuine hope in an anxious time.

Michael Fullan and Mary Jean Gallagher join forces in this must-read new book. They argue that we are at a pivotal time of dramatic change in the world and we need to act differently to determine whether the future will be better or worse for humanity. Fullan and Gallagher weave together challenging, complex and concerning issues with concrete strategies, actions, ideas and positive hope in an essential and very practical book for everyone committed to ensuring equity, excellence and well-being through education.

A powerhouse of a book that challenges conventional wisdom about system change in all its forms and guises. Fullan and Gallagher call upon all levels in the system to work collectively to 'let the light in' so that there is a new moral imperative shaping the future of education and humanity.

Övrig information

Michael Fullan served as Premier Dalton McGuintys Special Policy Adviser in Ontario from 2003-2013. He received the Order of Canada (OC) in December 2012 and holds five honorary doctorates from universities around the world. His interim autobiography, Surreal Change, covers his work to 2018. Michael and his colleagues are now working diligently on field-based comprehensive system change in several countries. This work operates under the umbrella of what they call the shared humanity paradigm Equity, Engagement, Excellence--Deep change that integrates local (school and community), middle (district/regional), and state (policy) entities.

Fullans favorite method of learning is to partner with groups that are engaged with change; and to learn together with them. (And then to write another book about the experiences, and what was learned).

Michael Fullans latest books are:  Nuance (2019), Spirit Work and the Science of Collaboration (with Mark Edwards, 2022), The Principal 2.0 (2023), and The Drivers (with Joanne Quinn, 2023).
