Abstract

This paper is informed by a case study conducted in the District of Kota Tidore Kepulauan, in North Maluku Province. The two questions that drive the investigation are: (1) How do teachers, principals, supervisors and local education administrators translate active learning that is embbeded in the national School-Based Curriculum policy in the classrooms and schools? and: (2) What obstacles do they face in implementation. In particular, the paper explores the impact of politics and culture on school reform. The findings suggest that surface-level change is the dominant feature of the reform efforts and outcome. The responses made by district and school actors to translate the national policy into local practices are marked with various limitations in which the role of politics and societal culture are critical.
