About the Edition

The Language Enhancement and Achievement Programme (LEAP) was an educational change initiative that was carried out in Northern Pakistan between 1995 and 2003. Its purpose was to improve the English and teaching methodology of teachers. Using Fullan"s theoretical framework, this study attempted to determine how aspects of LEAP"s initiation, implementation and continuation affected its chances of bringing change to the beliefs and practices of teachers in the Northern Areas. The opinions of LEAP graduates and educational leaders were solicited. The study concluded that while the LEAP Programme had some of the characteristics of a successful reform effort, it was also deeply flawed, and had been designed and managed without reference to the accumulated knowledge on educational change. The study questions the choice of English as the language of instruction in some schools of the Northern Areas. It also recommends that a theory of educational change be devised for developing countries.
