School Improvement An Unofficial Approach

by Martin Thrupp

Part of the Improving Schools S. Series

School Improvement An Unofficial Approach Synopsis

Martin Thrupp argues that there has to be a much bigger educational and social justice agenda to school improvement than the managerial approaches typically taken by government policy. He critiques those school improvement texts, courses and consultancies which mostly frame their analyses within the terms of current policy and therefore act to apologise for it. An alternative, more critical approach to school improvement is developed in the book and the author also provides examples of practical strategies to be employed within this approach.
