Summary What constitutes quality schooling? What are the implications for educational practice and administration? This comprehensive handbook looks at these questions and examines international research evidence and reform initiatives with particular emphasis on North America, UK, Australasia and the Third World. The authors analyse the relationship between School Effects Research and other reform movements, such as Teacher Effects Research and School Improvement Studies. They show that the challenge now facing educational leaders is to find a balance between SER and other school movements and to ask more demanding questions of our educational systems. This is a much needed handbook that will prove invaluable for its depth and scope.
