Summary The broad approach of local management of schools or the self-managing school is now widely accepted. In Britain there is even consensu between the three major political parties that the approach should be continued and extended. A key issue, though, is what comes next for self-managing schools? Drawing on their work and experience in research consultancy, Caldwell and Spinks examine the way in which education is changing, and outline what is desirable and workable for schools today, with clear guidelines for policy-makers and practitioners. The focus is specifically on the school, the classroom, the student, and the future of learning in societ. Practitioners will find this book immediatley accessible and useful.
