Description:
Education is the platform for our success or failure. Is our system still fit for purpose? This fascinating study examines this and other key questions in the primary education environment. We live in a world dramatically different from the one we grew up in, the one we were educated in; a world that is changing at an accelerated rate. Education is the platform for our success or failure. The critical question is: is our system still fit for purpose? Will our children be equipped to face the challenges the future holds; the rapidly changing employment patterns and the global environmental, economic and social crises ahead of us? Or will our children grow up to resent their school years and blame them for their unfulfilled potential and achievement? "Leading Tomorrow's Schools Today" explores these questions in the context of early schooling, primary education, some of the most formative and important years of our children's lives. The book presents powerful arguments that suggest an imperative for change and will explore the possible strategies and thinking that can offer a solution. The author provides real context and concrete examples based on the incredible journey taken by one primary school, Grange. He shows how, by developing a creative and futures facing system, it not only evolved from being a school on the verge of failure to a school globally recognised for its success and innovation in two years but more importantly created a system that has equipped its children to be not only prepared for but confident in their futures.
