Toward Systemic Educational Change: Questions from a Complex Systems Perspective

Researchers in Education and in Complex Systems Analysis have a unique opportunity to help strengthen the U.S. educational system and bring new tools for thinking to millions of Americans. These tools can help prepare students to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex environment, both at home and at work.

This Report both highlights the prospects for a complex systems approach to educational change and invites wider participation in the next stages of formulating a research and action agenda. The aim of that agenda is twofold: (1) to find the best ways to bring these new tools for thinking to the largest numbers of students in every area of the curriculum, and (2) to apply the insights of complex systems analysis to one of the most complex systems of all: our contemporary system of education.
