Summary Drawing on his keynote presentation at the National Invitational Symposium, School Autonomy and System Leadership: A Formula for School Improvement, Professor Caldwell provides background on the development of increased school autonomy/self-management; highlights the importance of developing a narrative that transcends political boundaries and takes a long-term view; comments on some of the myths about autonomy that are getting in the way of moving from improvement to transformation; describes the forces that are driving similar developments around the world; addresses issues related to impact on learning and the need for aligning the efforts of leaders across all levels of the system; and offers a prognosis for the decade ahead
