Les Clés de l'amélioration continue des systèmes scolaires: résumé

How does a school system with poor performance become good? And how does one with good performance become excellent? These were the questions policymakers and education leaders asked in the wake of the 2007 report How the world’s best performing school systems come out on top, which examined the common attributes of high-performing school systems.
Tthis new report, How the world’s most improved school systems keep getting better attempts to answer these questions. It analyzes 20 systems from around the world, all with improving but differing levels of performance, examining how each has achieved significant, sustained, and widespread gains in student outcomes, as measured by international and national assessments. Based on over 200 interviews with system stakeholders and analysis of some 600 interventions carried out by these systems—together comprising what the authors believe is the most comprehensive database of global school system reform ever assembled—this report identifies the reform elements that are replicable for school systems elsewhere as they move from poor to fair to good to great to excellent performance.
The studied systems were: Armenia, Aspire (a US charter school system), Boston (Massachusetts), Chile, England, Ghana, Hong Kong, Jordan, Latvia, Lithuania, Long Beach (California), Madhya Pradesh (India), Minas Gerais (Brazil), Ontario (Canada), Poland, Saxony (Germany), Singapore, Slovenia, South Korea, and Western Cape (South Africa).

"Les clés de l’amélioration des systèmes scolaires" est le titre du nouveau rapport publié par McKinsey & Company. Fondée sur l’analyse approfondie des systèmes scolaires qui ont progressé à travers le monde et sur celle de près de 600 réformes, cette nouvelle étude répond à la question : "Comment fait-on pour progresser ? Comment un système scolaire peu performant devient-il "bon" ? Puis comment passer de "bon" à "très bon", puis à "excellent" ?". A la veille de la parution des résultats de l’étude PISA de l’OCDE, ce nouveau rapport montre que tout système scolaire peut progresser de façon importante et rapidement - en moins de six ans – en mettant en place un ensemble de leviers prioritaires qui varient selon le niveau de performance dans lequel le système se situe. Pour les systèmes scolaires européens qui, comme la France, ont une bonne performance sans être pour autant excellents, la clé de l’amélioration réside principalement dans les pratiques pédagogiques et la transmission des savoir-faire entre les enseignants sur le terrain, ainsi que dans l’accroissement des marges de manœuvre laissées aux structures régionales et aux établissements.
