Samenvatting

Every school is different, but all schools face very similar challenges. Drawing on their combined teaching experience of over fifty years in both independent and state schools, educationalists David James and Ian Warwick have chosen ten questions that tackle the most difficult challenges that face schools today, and invited leading education experts to address them in stimulating and accessible essays, which are each under a thousand words. With contributions from John Hattie, David Blunkett, Doug Lemov, Anthony Seldon, Sandy Speicher, Tim Hawkes and many more, this insightful and engaging book features exclusive essays with some of the world's most well-known and well-respected thinkers and speakers in education, business and politics, accompanied by thought-provoking introductions. The contributors provide new perspectives on some of the issues that occupy educationalists today; they challenge conventional wisdom and, above all, put forward practical, workable, evidence-based solutions that can transform teaching and learning. World Class is a powerful manifesto for change that nobody interested in education today can ignore.

Recensie(s)

A wonderful, provocative, enjoyable and original book. Carol Dweck, Lewis & Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology, Stanford University I'll declare and interest here as this treasure-trove of a book includes a short contribution from me. More importantly, however, James and Warwick have managed to assemble an astonishing array of thinkers to produce a book that will challenge, inspire and inform in equal measure. David Weston, author During the busy term time it can be impossible to find the space to stop and reflect on the wide range of issues impacting on schools and education. So if you look to the summer break as an opportunity to pause and think about the issues that really matter to you, then this book will give you plenty to think about. Each chapter invites contributors to share their thoughts on the various challenges in less than a thousand words. With the challenges addressing topics such as teaching, testing, behaviour, the use technology and effective leadership, this book is ideal for starting a summer deck-chair debate. Paula Nagel, Principal Educational Psychologist for a national children's mental health charit and author
