Product description

Review

Experience of working alongside Mick Waters as a member of the school improvement team within a local authority enabled me to review this book with added awareness of Mick s professional and personal abilities. He stimulates thinking and offers practical perspectives gained from a breadth of experience at the coal face . His voice, that challenges many aspects of current thinking, offers a practical and realistic approach to address key issues faced by staff within schools and colleges. Current key foci of inspection teams is to raise aspirations and challenge pupils and students to improve achievement and performance. Mick, in his own inimitable style talks realistically on p179 onwards, unleashing aspirations and sending the human spirit soaring..... aspiration is than simply upbeat slogans A brilliant book encapsulating all of Mick s abilities, experience and skills to stimulate staff and students to think outside of the box. --John T Morris BA(Hons),MEd,MPhil,CertEd, Director, JTM Educational Consultants

Mick Waters is a calm, seasoned voice in the rising clamour of debate on the future of education. Drawing on his long experience in classrooms and in national policy, Thinking Allowed offers a wise, well-informed and practical perspective on the challenges that face education and how to meet them. Unlike many passing politicians, Mick Waters has spent his life in education. This insightful, compassionate book distils the essence of what he has learnt and what we can learn from him. An essential read. --Sir Ken Robinson

Mick Waters has produced the right book for the right time. He penetrates to the heart of the many open discussions we are having about education today. We may not agree with all he says, but we cannot help but be stimulated to think at a deeper level by reading this book. --Dr Anthony Seldon, Master, Wellington College

From the Back Cover

One of the UK's most influential education figures tells it how it is.
Is the school system fit for the purpose of helping the pupils of today achieve their potential?
How has schooling developed over time and where might it be going in the future?
Do national politicians improve or stifle schools?
What matters in teaching, learning and leadership?
Mick Waters uses the experience he has gained from a career in which he has both worked in schools and had major roles in shaping education policy at local and national level to offer a unique perspective: that of someone close to the classroom, but with an ability to see through innovation, policy and practice. Mick tells it how it is, explains his beliefs and sheds light on progress and problems in the school system.
