The Future Of Schools, Lessons From The Reform Of Public Education – By Brian J. Caldwell, Don Haywardthe future of schools

Published 29th August 1997 by Routledge

This book provides a unique analysis of the efforts to establish systems of self-managing schools around the world. It describes the ‘Schools of the Future’ program in Victoria – the largest system anywhere to have decentralized 90 percent of its budget for local management in schools. The core of this important book charts the move from dependence on a highly centralized and bureaucratized structure to one that values local decision-making, and the creation of a system of self-managing schools. The book also shows how these and similar programs in other nations will lay the foundation for further reform. This is a fascinating collaboration between a leading academic and a former government minister. (click on image to purchase)
