Schools are expected and challenged to achieve student outcomes commensurate with the abilities of all students, but few are capable of this. This book demonstrates that present school structures and processes need to be redesigned, and suggests ways of reforming schools to enhance student outcomes. The author suggests that a holistic approach that integrates all facets of school life - learning, teaching, curriculum, school structures, resources, leadership and management - is needed. A practical and coherent model is used, underpinned by research evidence of what works and how practitioners can apply best practice to improvements for student outcomes.
"The strength of the book is the comprehensive and critical review of the current U.S., British, and Australian research literature in relation to each of the elements of his design model, such as the school effectiveness and school improvement research."
