Leadership and Learning Press Reviews

' Leadership for what? ask the editors of this important new book - finally acknowledging that leadership's most important attribute is knowing where you are heading. Beginning to question the bedevilling assumption that school success is all about exams, this book is a significant step on the road from 19th to 21st century education' - Professor Guy Claxton, author of 'What's the Point of School?'
