Reviews

Pattick McManus, M.Ed. ★★★★★

In my opinion this is a modern, challenging, informative and provocative book which belongs to the desks of School Directors, Head Teachers and Principles as well as at the reading lusts of many education and management modules. Well done!

Daniel Jacobs,M.Ed. ★★★★★

Great help for those aspiring to become school administrators and provocative stuff for serving administrators. For university students majoring in education and management an innovative edition to bibliography

Thomas Meyer ★★★★★

Definitely NOT a primer! The book is a well structured, thoroughly documented provocative and challenging thesis on what really makes excellent primary asndbsevondary schools. Useful education statistics, including SEND data on a global scale, and a wealth of info on leadership and management theories make this book an excellent edition to existing bibliography.

Elizabeth Ferguson, M.A.Ed. ★★★★★

Buildings and grounds, technical equipment and other facilities constitute the infrastructure and define the quality of our schools to a considerable extent. What really 'makes the difference' for pupils and students are their teachers with their university backgrounds, experience, motivation and commitment. Headteachers, Principals and Directors are the actors/agents that can bring all elements of a school system to the top levels of potential achievement. The authors of this book have done a brilliant job In presenting their innovative, provocative and challenging thresis!

Rachael Klein, B.Ed.,M.Ed. ★★★★★

As a teacher I found it informative, creatively bold, challenging and contemporary. Will broaden the readers perspectives on the challenges of creating excellent schools for the education of children on a global scale.

Description

The book is aimed at students in management, education and other subjects planning a career in primary and secondary schools, at school personnel and members of the broader interested public. Co-authors of the book are an academic-practitioner in management who taught university courses and consulted corporations and organizations at both sides of the Atlantic and a psychologist working at secondary level schools for special education needs teenagers for the last 7 years, after running her private practice and lecturing school teachers at the post-graduate level. Father and daughter have composed this ‘primer’ hoping it will help to highlight the art and science of managing modern primary and secondary schools.
