Why do some schools perform outstandingly well when others of the same size and serving the same kind of community do not? How do some schools sustain their record of exceeding expectations when others can only maintain it for short periods of time or under particular leaders? Can schools reverse a worrying record of decline with existing staff and leadership, or do they always need new brooms to sweep them clean? And how do you get performance that exceeds expectations not just in one or two exceptional schools but in entire groups of them within one community or local authority? This book draws upon the findings from a unique project – the Beyond Expectations Project - that explored how the best school districts/local authorities and school systems perform beyond expectations (PBE). It looks at the ways in which the highest performing schools, districts/local authorities and school systems achieve and sustain excellence, especially with challenging communities or after years of poor performance and decline. Based on rich data from over twenty education sites across three countries, and full of detailed case studies from Finland, Alberta, Ontario and Singapore – all with stellar records of student achievement on international test comparisons - the book illuminates and illustrates the key factors of success. Chapters cover: The PBE effect - what is known about exceptional performance and what are the common themes and ideas about PBE within education; PBE Systems - how systems become and remain high performing across an entire nation, state or province. PBE Districts - the strategies, approaches, techniques that districts and local authorities use to secure PBE. PBE Schools - how schools in different sectors and in different cultures achieve PBE and how this might inform and assist other schools. Leading PBE - what is known about the nature and approach to leadership in PBEs, in particular ‘inclusive and inspirational’ leadership. A final chapter concludes the book by identifying action guidelines for developing and delivering PBE change that can assist other schools, districts and systems to think about how they might move towards PBE. This book will be of interest to school leaders, teacher, local authority and district officers, policy makers, system leaders and all those with an interest and involvement in securing high performance in schools and school systems.

In a complex and multi-layered world, the conventional idea of great leadership being the result of the efforts of a single individual is rapidly becoming redundant. This book takes up the challenge of finding an alternative method of leadership in educational contexts, and looks at how this can help achieve sustained improvement in schools.The authors acknowledge that there are no simple solutions to school improvement. They argue that the effective leaders of the future will be those who are able to share responsibility, build positive relationships and offer stakeholders - teachers, parents and students - an opportunity to work together to improve their schools.The book is based around four key areas of concern: the changing context of leadership, leadership and school improvement, building leadership capacity, and future direction and implications. In each section, the authors discuss current theories and issues, and put forward alternative ideas and perspectives.This important book will make valuable reading for headteachers, principles, deputies and other senior teachers, particularly those undertaking leadership qualifications and training. It will also be of interest to postgraduate students and school governors. (view table of contents)

The success of school reform measures greatly depends on the support and commitment of teachers. This book examines the realities of educational change from the frontline perspective of reform-minded teachers. It charts the perceptions and experiences of twenty-nine teachers in grades 7 and 8 from four school districts--showing how they grappled with such initiatives as integrated curriculum, common learning standards, and alternative modes of assessment. This book moves beyond the bandwagons of rhetorical change and examines how these changes work in practice for better and for worse. Authors Andy Hargreaves and Lorna Earl focus on how reform proposals have brought new complexities to teaching practice and why major investments of time and support are required if teaching innovations are to become lasting and effective. Most importantly, they highlight the intense emotional demands that school change imposes on teachers, and they outline practical strategies for helping teachers through the difficult transition process--thus ensuring that worthwhile reforms flourish and endure.
