This text offers a collection of 11 case studies of school-based reform which provide both a discussion of the broad issues involved in reconceptualizing schools for the future and specific innovations that have changed the concept of best practice.

Written by a variety of contributors, each example focuses on a particular innovation such as: School leadership. School improvement. Restructuring around learning. Quality and achievement. Creative arts in schools. Social inclusion. Literature and emotional intelligence. Relevant to secondary schools, this practical book will be welcomed by all administrators and education management students.
