This paper explores educational change in the Toronto school board between 1970 and 1990, a period that saw an intense focus on improving the education of inner city students. Based on interviews with key change agents, it argues that a social movement was key to the changes that were experienced. The ideas about education and the relationships that brought some coherence to the movement are illustrated and linked to educational change.
