It's About Learning (and it's About Time) by Louise Stoll
Book DescriptionThe purpose of this book is to re-orient the current agenda in education towards learning. The recent emphasis has been on achieving standards through managing schools, teachers and the teaching process. But the real purpose of schools was, is, and always will be about learning. In an increasingly complex, diverse and unpredictable world, it is necessary for schools and those working with them to refocus on learning at all levels - pupils, teachers, leaders, the organisation as a whole and all of the school's partners. It's About Learning is a clear and well written discussion woven with practical examples and strategies. It also includes an annotated bibliography suggesting useful follow-up reading, and the issues are posed as questions for reflection and discussion.

Changing Our Schools, Paperback (March 1996)» View all books by Louise Stoll
Many of our schools are good schools - if this were 1965. Processes and structures designed for a time that has passed are no longer appropriate in a rapidly changing society. By linking the why, what and how of change, this title provides a theoretical critique and practical advice to assist those committed to changing and improving schools.
