Rebuilding Our Schools from the Bottom Up: Listening to Teachers, Children and Parents

Rebuilding Our Schools from the Bottom Up: Listening to Teachers, Children and Parents (Paperback)

£21.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

The aim of this book is to explore how teachers, students and parents can be given more of a say in the education system - in how schools are organised, and in what and how children learn. The book does not promote a specific view of education, but considers the means by which educational purposes and approaches can be conceived, agreed and enacted democratically - a precursor to a flourishing democratic society.





Rebuilding Our Schools from the Bottom Up has been written in response to significant changes which have taken place in the education system over the past 30 years. In England at least, these changes have resulted in an increasingly centralised system in which the voices of those who teach, those who learn, and those whose children go to school have been marginalised.





The book covers four main areas:



















Teacher voice: listening to the professionals















Student voice: involving students as active participants in their education















Parent voice: building a genuine home-school partnership















School community voice: developing a shared vision











With inspiring examples from around the UK and overseas and a range of resources that can be used by senior leaders, teachers and parents, the book aims to encourage and support transformative change so that schools can meet the needs of the communities they exist to serve.
