Modernizing Schools PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Modernizing Schools free pdf "Modernizing Schools: People, Learning and Organisations" poses four key questions: What are the antecedents of the current waves of modernization and what directions is it taking in England and internationally? Does workforce modernization, in whatever form, offer meaningful ways forward for the teaching profession in England and other countries? How is the leadership of change to take place with respect to educational modernization in England and elsewhere? What alternative approaches to remodelling might be developed with regard to the workforce labour market in England and in other national contexts? In exploring these questions, this book draws upon research evidence and accounts of remodelling from researchers, headteachers, governors, teachers, students and parents. It concentrates on the challenge of the modernization of education both in the UK and internationally, and considers its underpinning concepts and policies, providing examples of workforce remodelling and the management of this process in schools. How resources are used and the effects of remodelling practice on different stakeholders are also examined - together with a discussion of how we might engage it in schools and more widely in the public sector.
