Summary "'What Makes A Good School?' was a highly regarded book by Tim Brighouse published in 1991. This book is the follow-up bringing the thinking right up to date. There is universal interest in the 'good school'. Parents want to find one, teachers seek to teach in one and children deserve to attend one. This book makes the assumption that success is possible in every school. The authors have selected material from the original book, 'What Makes A Good School?', adding many new ideas from their extensive work on school improvement over the last 15 years, set in the context of the many changes and new agendas that are a feature of schools today."--Publisher's website.
