Head Lights

wac-2I am keen to read Maxine McKew’s book, Class Act, in which she identifies six schools that have transformed themselves into highly successful operations. The three focus areas which research identifies for schools are: improving the knowledge and skills of the teachers, increasing the intellectual rigour of what students are taught, and changing the relationship students have with their education so they feel more responsible for their own learning. The first is a driver of our Professional Development at Glennie. The second is an imperative helped along by the Australian curriculum. The third we cannot do without parental support.
