In order to improve the educational system of the institution, students, teachers and sometimes authorities of the institution, are the ones who take the initiative to modify aspects of the established rules seeking a common purpose, which is a improvement in the educational system of the establishment. Some examples of educational reforms are: university reform in 1918, in the city of Cordoba, Argentina; the pedagogical reform, towards the end of the 19th century, and the Vareliana reform in Uruguay, among others.

Historical reform can be distinguished from the reform of revolution, given that the latter refers to a surprising and substantial change .
