Because educating children to pass tests isn’t enough.
Education is in the news around the world with governments doing their bit to clamber up the latest PISA league tables. But what is missing is a debate about what a good education really looks like. This book, written with the same passion and clarity with which Julie leads her schools, shows that there can be much more to a successful school than test results, inspections and league tables. She’s not saying these things aren’t important (her schools consistently do well in all of them after all). It’s just that schooling children isn’t enough. In this meaningful little book, Julie shares with you how she takes values – 22 of them – and works to instil them in the very fabric of her school on a daily basis – with moving results.
