Overview

This book aims to demystify the principles and practice of school improvement by demonstrating how successful classroom and school improvement occurs. It outlines the conditions, strategies and approaches that promote sustainable improvement and provides an overview of the main theoretical perspectives in this area.

This accessible text will be useful for practitioners working within schools and with schools, offering clear guidance for those keen to raise standards and improve achievement.

The What's In It For Schools? series aims to make educational policy issues relevant to practitioners. Each book in the series focuses on a major educational issue. The author sets the issue in context, looks at how it impacts on the daily lives of schools and teachers, and raises key questions. The books are grounded in sound theory, recent research evidence and best practice, and will make an excellent addition to any staffroom bookshelf.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'As the title suggests, the primary focus of this work is the committed teacher - it is aimed at those who work in schools. If all the books in the series are as good as this one, it will play an important role in making the wider research literature, national and international, available to a professional community whose time is precious.' - Danny Murphy, Improving Schools

'Distils recent school improvement research to make a powerful case for what works.' - Times Educational Supplement
