Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

The success of urban schools is a critical factor in the future of society. A dramatic statement for sure, but justified by the fact that eighty-nine per cent of the UK population live in urban areas.

Traditionally, 'inner-city' schools have presented some of the greatest challenges to educators. With the ever increasing numbers of pupils and changing demographics, many urban schools now face similar challenges too.

Tough, uncompromising and inspiring, this book makes a significant contribution to the understanding of how urban and city schools need to operate and how they need to be led.

Headteachers, deputies, those studying for the National Professional Qualification for Headship, and all aspiring school leaders will find the help and guidance in this book invaluable in shaping their work. The book will also be helpful to policy-makers, LEA officials and governors.

This is essential reading for anyone concerned with the reality of working in schools in contemporary Britain.
