Focuses on analysing the experiences of 20 school systems from all parts of the globe that have achieved significant, sustained, and widespread gains, as measured by national and international standards of assessment. The Appendix describes system selection criteria, as well as the database structure for the detailed evidence gathered to map the experiences of nearly 575 reform interventions made across the school systems in the research sample. The purpose in this work has been to understand precisely which interventions occurred in each school system and when, and how these interventions interacted with each other and with the system’s broader context to deliver better outcomes for students.
