The central question for the research project described in this chapter related to the ways in which the work of teachers at Gallipoli High School was being affected by recent reforms. Gallipoli High had established a collaborative ‘flatter management structure’, intended to distribute responsibility and accountability for a range of leadership and administrative practices across the teaching staff. As well, a shifting coalition of teachers was attempting to promote a range of reforms intended to improve the teaching and learning of junior high school students. The proposed reforms were predicated on high levels of collaboration, integration and joint work.
