Overview

This final book in the What's Worth Fighting For? trilogy concludes that the relationship between those in the school and those outside it must be fundamentally reframed. In a world of growing complexity and rapid change, if educators are going to bring about significant improvements in teaching and learning within schools, they must forge strong, open, and interactive connections with communities beyond them. To do this, the authors urge teachers and principals to go "wider" by developing new relationships with parents, employers, universities, technology, and the broader profession. At the same time, educators must also go "deeper" into the heart of their own practice by rediscovering the passion and moral purpose that make teaching and learning exciting and effective. As in the other two books in this series, the authors provide guidelines for teachers and principals to help them expand and improve their thinking and practice, and to show policy makers and communities what they can do and why they should do it for the sake of the future of children and society.
