The purpose of this book is to reorient the agenda in education towards learning. The emphasis has been on achieving standards through managing schools, teachers and the teaching process. But the real purpose of schools was, is, and always will be about learning. In an incresingly complex, diverse and unpredictable world, it is necessary for schools and those working with them to refocus on learning at all levels - pupils, teachers, leaders, the organization as a whole, and all of the schools' partners. This text is an accessibly written theoretical discussion woven with examples and strategies. It also includes an annotated bibliography suggesting useful follow-up reading.
