Format: Paperback
Giving the book a star rating is difficult because it is actually a decent read but the price is extortionately high and I would recommend borrowing it from a library or someone like me who was stupid enough to think I could expect a weighty tome of great enlightenment. For a paperback book of this size, the price is daylight robbery. I'm trying hard not to let this overshadow the quality of the content, but it's not easy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Angelica's Future School 6 Jun. 2001
By Tong Kai Hong Anthony - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Man's worst mortal fear is the fear of facing an unknown future. As the world is changing at a maddening pace, teachers may feel themselves particularly vulnerable. Chartered with the honourable yet onerous task of preparing the future lawyers, doctors, architects or economic pillars in their communities, teachers cannot escape the duty to try to create the "future schools" campatible with the new mode of living in a global village. From the very first pages, I was made a captive reader. Through the eye's of the five-year old Angelica, I saw graphically how the evolving scenes would require the rude awakening of many education workers to build a new vision for education. Fortunately, the author Hedley Beare was quite forthcoming about definitive approaches that teachers could adopt. Unlike authors who dodge the real issues and couch their recommendations in a nest of "ifs", the author overtook the gloomy preamble to paint a plausible frame for action. In summary, this book is highly recommended for educators whose crystal ball is cloudy as they are plunged into the unknown known as the knowledged base society.
5.0 out of 5 stars Schools- the big picture and the future. 11 Mar. 2001
By Dr Neil MacNeill - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Creating the future school"- Hedley Beare
While many parents, teachers and students revel in the static conservatism of education as we have come to know it, Hedley Beare sounds the clarion trumpet blast of a paradigm shift. Beare's creative analysis of future trends is not new but his contribution is that he makes great sense in translating those trends to school operations.
The story of Angelica, the future's child, personalizes the changes that will affect the children of this Century and it reiterates the coming globalisation that will be a reality to this next generation.
The section on teachers as knowledge workers emphasises what has long been ignored by writers in the business management sector. If we are to become a learning society then we need to re-examine the role of teachers and schools in our society. Beare reminds us that with all teachers (in Australia) holding four year degrees from universities, teaching is moving from a craft to a profession.
The book is well worth a place in school administrators' professional reading lists. And, the theses Beare proposes will help principals get their heads around the big picture and the new world of opportunities.
