This book examines the evaluation of
system-wide education at the state, district and school level. Five main
attributes used to study and measure an education systemís progress are
covered: alignment, saturation, linkages, equity and quality. Four enabling
attributes (capacity, sustainability, incentives and trade-offs) represent
changes that need to be made as a foundation for systemic reform as well as
provide for the advancement of systemic reform.
