A Practitioner's View of School Reform: Does It Really Matter?

pp. 512—516

Where do school psychologists fit into school reform, and do we have the organizational knowledge and skills to contribute to this comprehensive, systemic process? I find myself reflecting upon these questions given 20-plus years of practice as a school psychologist and my role in the school reform process. Fortunately, I have been employed in a school district that allowed me to stay abreast of reform efforts at the federal, state, and local levels and gave me the opportunity to practice school psychology using a best practices approach that has minimized the impact of top-down school reform mandates from the federal or state level.
