Overview

David Reynolds is recognised internationally as one of the leaders of the school effectiveness and school improvement movement, and Failure Free Education? brings together for the first time many of his most influential and provocative pieces. Drawing on the author's work from over three decades, these extracts from his seminal books, chapters, papers and articles combine to give a unique overview of how the movement developed, the problems involved in the application of the knowledge and the disciplines' potentially glittering future now.

The book also covers the issues raised by, and lessons learned from, his close involvement with English government educational policymaking from the mid 1990s to date.

This book is essential reading for those who seek to understand how we can make every school a good school, and what the obstacles may be to achieving that goal.
