Product Overview

The challenge of school improvement for failing schools is a complex and frequently debated issue. While much has been said on this topic, little has been published that can actually help those in such schools or those working with them. By addressing the issue from a range of perspectives, this edited volume will fill the gap in the existing literature. It contains policy perspectives written by a key national policy maker, an academic, and a local policy maker. In addition, it surveys the perspectives of three different schools. Chapters written by prominent school effectiveness researchers show that while there are no quick fixes for schools in difficulty, the problem of failing schools will not simply go away without informed action.

Editors Note
Editors Note 1 Comprises 16 contributions discussing the nature of troubled schools and the reasons for their failure. Written by headteachers, government policy makers, consultants, and researchers, the contributions are divided into six sections addressing policy, Local Education Authorities (LEAs), schools, external facilitators, conceptual issues, and international perspectives. While primarily written from the perspective of the British school systems, the contributions provide much material of interest to educators outside Britain as well. Distributed by Taylor & Francis.
