Designing Better Schools For Culturally And Linguistically Diverse Children

RRP $317.99

How can schools be better designed to enable equitable academic outcomes for culturally and linguistically diverse children from communities lacking in economic, political and social power? Putting forward a robust 'science of performance' model of school change based on a specified process of research and development in local contexts, this book:

  • lays out the traditions of optimism and pessimism about effective schooling for at-risk students
  • reviews the international and national evidence for the effectiveness of schools and school systems in reducing disparities in achievement
  • describes the challenges educational research must address to solve the problem of school effectiveness, proposes strict criteria against which effectiveness should be judged, and examines in detail examples where change has been demonstrated
  • proposes how researchers, professionals, and policy-makers can develop more effective systems.

Bringing together structural and psychological accounts of the nature of schools, and establishing theoretically defensible criteria for judging effectiveness, this book is a critically important contribution to advancing the science of making schools more effective.


Building Bridges From High Poverty Communities, To Schools, To Productive Citizenship

RRP $261.99

More than 20 per cent of all children in the United States live in poverty. This is particularly troubling given the associated risks of poverty to children's social, emotional, and behavioral well-being; risks that have the potential to negatively impact children's lives in and out of school. This book considers the impact of poverty on education, the unique needs of students from high poverty backgrounds, and strategies that hold promise in successfully educating students from high poverty backgrounds. There is a tremendous need for a practical model of school leadership aimed at bridging the gap between high poverty schools and communities, in order to lessen the effects of poverty on children and youth's educational and life experiences. The authors call this exceptional educational leadership, an approach that centers on the moral and ethical imperative to act in the best interests of children, youth, and their families.
