This revised edition of Mapping Educational Success has been updated to include the latest insights into planning and delivering successful education. The author suggests that principals and administrators should make a strategic shift to an orientation where results are always the central focus. This would involve new methods of planning, developing, implementing and evaluating in order to achieve predictable educational success.
