Abstract

Scanning the international school-turnaround literature highlights that the empirical evidence largely embodies and reflects a Western perspective and that most of studies of turnaround schools have been undertaken in Western education systems, particularly the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe. Most notably, the evidence base on school turnaround in Asia remains relatively limited, particularly in developing countries. Consequently, this chapter outlines the findings from a small-scale, exploratory, comparative study of leading school school turnaround in Asia remains relatively limited, particularly in developing countries. Consequently, this chapter outlines the findings from a small-scale, exploratory, comparative study of leading school turnaround in Malaysia and Indonesia. This study outlines the turnaround process in each context from the perspective of principals and teachers in a small sample of schools. The aim of this chapter is to offer insights into the turnaround process in each setting and to provide illustrative insights into the process of leading school turnaround in Malaysia and Indonesia.
