Education reform is mainly about changing 'traditional' educational practices or policies, presumably for the better. This may include changing teaching methods, administration, textbooks, schedules, curriculum, and grouping and promotion practices, for example. As time goes on, new issues come and go, but all would be considered 'education reform.'
