Practical suggestions for transforming education,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creating Tomorrow's Schools Today: Education - Our Children - Their Futures (Paperback)
I don't really write reviews but I felt compelled to for this book.
Everyone talks about the needs to improve schools, some about transforming education, many with wonderful theories about how this might be done - Richard Gerver lays out a very clear case study of how this can be done based on how he did it at Grange School.
From creating Grangeton their own functioning town within the school run by the pupils, to Grange University (an elective module-based multi-grade learning experience), it's incredible to see how a Primary can be run so differently despite working within the (UK) National Curriculum.
I love Ken Robinson for his vision (& humour!), but if you care about the future of our schools and are longing for practical inspiration on what they should be doing today, this is the book to buy - only regret is I wish the case study part of it was longer!
