In education there have been attempts to alter the way we institute change in schools. Collaboration, whereas it is not a new idea, has provided the mechanisms that purport to change the way school problems are approached. The atmosphere of collaboration, or the uniting of two or more organizational points of view, has created a synergy of sorts in approaching the overwhelming circumstances of schooling today. Yet, have collaborative efforts provided permanent solutions and new ways of operating? Have they changed the life of schools and universities? Are they suffi cient structures to serve schools in the future?
