A book for educational leaders, teachers and parents that stimulates discussion towards building the schools we know can exist.
The book contends that there is a better way, and probably many better ways, beyond the accepted norm to run a school and to market the knowledge and skills and mindsets that we intrinsically value and require but so often fail to make available to our learners.
The book aims to amend the split that exists between intent and actuality. It offers a process that will better empower, energise and autonomise the staff (all school leaders and teachers). It offers an approach that will speak to the learners of relevance, accountability, responsibility and interesting and go-getting futures. And it offers a means for creating a ‘ripeness’ for improvement.
What drives this writing is the search for better ways, for learning and the hope that as ideas multiply the prospect for deep change, of the person and the organisation, becomes more real.
In an increasingly complex world, sometimes old questions require new answers.
