Case Study Three: Tiga International School (TIS)

Part of the Policy Implications of Research in Education book series (PIRE, volume 4)


All staff members at Tiga International School (TIS) were participants in the study. The first section of this chapter provides a profile of TIS. The chapter then goes on to outline the findings from the policy analysis regarding the introduction of the IBPYP at this site. As with the previous two chapters, they are considered in terms of the four contexts of the ‘policy trajectory’ framework, namely, the contexts of influences, policy text production, practices, and outcomes.
