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.
