This editorial sets out the context and agenda for this special issue of School
Effectiveness and School Improvement, which brings together accounts of initiatives
from diverse national contexts around the world. The overall purpose is to explore the
possibilities and challenges of using inquiry-based approaches to school improvement, focusing in particular on the challenge of equity. The editors begin by outlining some of the important considerations for researchers working in collaborative projects that specifically place equity, and educational and social change, at the center of the development work. They then indicate themes for readers to keep in mind as they consider the arguments developed in the papers.
