This paper discusses the concept of school-based management (SBM), often also called whole school reform. The paper is in four sections: (1) A description and discussion of what is meant by school-based management; (2) a review of the literature about its implementation; (3) a review of its effects on students; and (4) some general conclusions. The main arguments are that SBM is a concept of modest entitivity and that this contributes to the only modest achievement effects that have been attributed to SBM reforms to date when higher quality evaluations are performed.
