In the spring 2000 the county director of education in Oppland County, Norway, decided that co-operative learning (CL) was to be a common strategy used in the educational change of all high schools in the county. The decision was reached after agreement with school principals, and after both teachers and pupils had had the opportunity of becoming familiar with this learning strategy and giving it their support. The county administration gained the necessary political support, and in the autumn 2000 the decision was made to implement a number of measures on the county and school level.
