This book features a diverse set of perspectives all focused towards questioning the role schools actually play in society and, more importantly, the role they could potentially play. Containing papers presented at the 1st International Conference on Reimagining Schooling which took place in Thessaloniki, Greece, June 2013, bringing together international and multi-disciplinary perspectives on the future of education and schools. Combines diverse specialties analyzing schools as organizations and questions the purpose of schools. The book explores the current purpose of schooling and debates what roles and values young people currently learn from schooling. It examines such issues as the impact of Neoliberalism, the pursuit of the socially just school, and imagining contemporary schools beyond their consumerist mentality. Tackling development in the growing economic and social crisis in Europe, and offering transformative analysis of the psychology and decision-making involved for innovating teaching, learning, socio-economic and policy contexts. In addition, the book shows different ways young people can be creatively involved in reimagining schooling. It also details both innovative and radical ideas that currently exist about school transformation such as building learning partnerships for all and creating synergies across formal and informal settings of learning. Raising important questions for the future of the relationship between teacher and pupil and positive and pro-active behavior. There is a growing realization that schools fail to accommodate diverse types of learning and that their purpose is not simply about education. Featuring academics and practitioners from many different disciplines, this book boldly questions the values that currently permeate school walls and suggests ways that schooling itself can be made better.

This fascinating and vital book seeks to challenge the effectiveness of current practices in professional development by urging educators to rethink professional learning for teachers and teaching assistants. It importantly brings together ideas about teacher professionalism and how to build creative and trusting cultures in which high expectations are not compromised. Throughout, teachers describe significant professional learning and growth, often through dynamic partnerships with others, that allows them to inspire imaginative possibilities; different and creative ways to ignite hope and opportunity for children. Four key themes guide the reader through the collection of chapters: professional capital, learning communities, teachers as researchers and subject-specific professional development. They explore: The types of professional development approaches that support teachers to make meaningful changes within their practices. The conditions and school cultures that are needed for teachers to meaningfully prosper from professional development. The impact that unintended consequences of system accountability drivers and funding have on teachers’ experiences of professional development. The ways in which the development of curriculum and pedagogy can be integrated with models of professional development, particular in the creative arts. Packed with innovative ideas and practical suggestions and co-written by researchers and practitioners, this book highlights the importance of using research evidence to develop teachers’ practice within the realities of their own classrooms and schools. This will be a key read for teachers, school leaders, teaching assistants and student teachers.

This book considers the diffusion and transfer of educational ideas through local and transcontinental networks within and across five socio-political spaces. The authors examine the social, political, and historical preconditions for the transfer of “new education” theory and practices in each period, place, and school, along with the networks of ideas and experts that supported this. The authors use historical methods to examine the schools and to pursue the story of the circulation of new ideas in education. In particular, chapters investigate how educational ideas develop within contexts, travel across boundaries, and are adapted in new contexts.

This book examines the roles of power and politics, governance and management, as well as accountability and professionalism in transforming the educational systems inherited from apartheid colonialism in South Africa. With a focus on the Eastern Cape province, with its vast stretches of rural settlements and a few urban sprawls, high levels of social inequality manifesting along racial lines and communities ruled by patriarchy, changing its provincial educational system is a mammoth task. This study traces the efforts to set up an integrated Eastern Cape Department of Education and the national interventions introduced to assume responsibility for running it. The study is unique in its utilization of the 'theory of change' model and positions that theory in a local setting by examing the inherited socio-economic contexts, the reasons, conditions and paradigms behind the status quo, and by projecting what needs to be done to attain the objectives.

Re imagining the Art School

This book proposes ‘paragogic’ methods to re-imagine the art academy.

This book proposes ‘paragogic’ methods to re-imagine the art academy. While art schooling was revolutionised in the early 20th century by the Bauhaus, the author argues that many art schools are unwittingly recycling the same modernist pedagogical fashions. Stagnating in such traditions, today’s art schools are blind to recent advances in the scholarship of teaching and learning. As discipline-based education research in art eternally battles the perceived threat of epistemicide, transformative educational practices are rapidly overcoming the perennialism of the art school. The author develops critical case studies of open source and peer-to-peer methods for re-imagining the art academy (para-academia) and andragogy (paragogy). This innovative book will be of interest and value to students and scholars of the art school, as well as how the art academy can be reimagined and rebuilt.

`If one is concerned with the future of education this book is a must. While it is humbling it is also an inspirational invitation for transformation' - Florida Journal of Educational Administration & Policy `It is clear that school leadership has had to adapt to the changing educational climate and this has required changes at all levels, as well as shifts in balance. This book addresses these challenges and demonstrates a variety of illustrative examples of how successful these changes can be. This is a useful primer for those studying leadership in schools and some of the associated theories and practice . There are wide and well-considered references across the educational and management lendscape and it provides thought-provoking views on how leadership can be practised'-ESCalate `The fact that we know you are watching, Brian, helps all of us both to perform well in the present and to invent a future in which we perform better still...I commend Brian's writings to anyone committed to world-class public education' - Professor Sir Michael Barber, Expert Partner, Global Public Sector Practice, McKinsey and Company, Former Head of Prime Minister's Delivery Unit at 10 Downing Street `In Re-imagining Educational Leadership Brian Caldwell has set an outstanding framework for school leaders and educators to fundamentally rethink schools and school leadership. The book is very perceptive and links ideas and concepts to the practical reality of schools in an inspiring and imaginative way. This is a 'must read' book for all those involved in developing inspiring leadership in our schools. This is a major contribution to the educational literature' - Professor Brent Davies, Professor of International Leadership Development at the University of Hull `Brian Caldwell has successfully brought together an analysis of past and current practice in leadership but, most significantly, he has outlined key thoughts, ideas and perspectives to inspire leaders in their personal learning journey in the future... This book will become one of the key sources of ideas for leadership in schools over the next few years. It is both accessible and thought provoking while never losing the practical relevance to schools and school leaders. This is a "must read" for all those involved in educational leadership and 21st century schooling' - International Journal of Educational Management We do not know the precise form that education will take in different settings in 25 years' time. No-one does. No-one should claim to have this foresight. Leadership is required, however, regardless of the form that education takes. In this book, Brian Caldwell draws on his work on self-managing schools, his most recent work in the UK with the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, and on evidence from around the world, to describe how leadership is changing the world of education on a scale that can best be described as transformation. Such leadership differs in important ways from what has been expected in the past: it requires a change in role at all levels, and shifts the balance from what is often a dispiriting and discouraging experience to one that is exhilarating. The author's insight and recommendations are essential reading for all school leaders, potential school leaders and policy makers at local and national levels who seek to secure high levels of achievement for all students in all settings. About the author Brian J. Caldwell is Managing Director of Melbourne-based Educational Transformations, and Professorial Fellow at the University of Melbourne where he served as Dean of Education from 1998 to 2004. He is Associate Director-Global of International Networking for Educational Transformation, a project of the London-based Specialist Schools and Academies Trust. Brian is internationally known as an expert in educational leadership. Awards include the Gold Medal of the Australian Council of Educational Leaders, the Hedley Beare Educator of the Year Award (Victoria), and the College Medal (Australia) of the Australian College of Educators.

Learning Not Schooling: Reimagining the Purpose of Education examines how both the curiosity and the initiative of students in their formative years can be stimulated by partnering local schools with the world of adult work and professional expertise. This tactic addresses some of the issues that seem to continually plague us, such as how to help students learn more effectively in the modern age, or how to more fully address some of the perpetual inequities between different socioeconomic groupings. Drawing on his experiences from founding and directing a private school for students age six to fourteen, Lyn Lesch presents a new model for education in which learning for students increasingly occurs in the world of adult expertise, with classroom teachers taking on the role of conduits that not only prepare students to learn from professionals working in various fields but also assist them in absorbing the advanced information and knowledge they will be acquiring.

Savitz-Romer offers a strategic approach to school counseling that enables educational leaders to draw on existing staff to create supportive contexts and programs for students. In this model of the “academic home,” counselors serve as the first point of contact for student support, connecting and coordinating services much like primary care physicians coordinate patient care in medical settings. They serve as the hub of a network of supports to prevent students from falling between the cracks. By highlighting promising practices in schools, districts, and states, and the efforts of individual school counselors and leaders, Fulfilling the Promise presents a conceptualization of school counseling that is relevant for all educators, as well as policy makers and funders. In order to create the conditions for school counselors to be most effective, however, systemic barriers must be addressed. This book brings together research, practical experience, and policy recommendations to envision a focused and practical role for school counselors in the twenty-first century.
