'The text is challenging and stimulating and structured to provide the reader with an accessible synopsis of the range of current trends and solutions in the area of educational financial management being applied in the UK and the global context' - Improving Schools

Managing Finance, Resources and Stakeholders in Education provides readers with knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice of managing finance, resources and stakeholders in schools and colleges.

Examples are drawn from international settings as well as from the United Kingdom. Building on an examination of theoretical perspectives, practical considerations and applications are examined in a format, which encourages the reader to explore the context of their own educational institution.
