Building Belonging: A systematic approach to school improvement and emotional well-being
Building belonging provides all the tools school leaders need to help unlock rapid school improvement by introducing The Emotional Wellbeing School Improvement Framework. Building on a robust evidence base it ensures everyone has a clear understanding of their collective destination by drawing on the views of all stakeholders to help ensure your organisation can prioritise objectives to best meet the needs of your young people. This is a practical, comprehensive guide to moving from unconscious to conscious competence in driving school improvement while protecting the emotional wellbeing of children and staff in a way that's proven to make a difference.Beginning with the genesis of the Framework this book gives readers a step-by-step guide to how to make it work in their own specific setting. The framework helps build capacity and the flexibility to support elsewhere as the direction of travel remains constant and everyone is clear about what they need to do, even if senior leaders move on. It also support succession planning as aspiring leaders know the systems and can step up much more smoothly.Crucially the framework does not dictate how to do things. It strives for aligned autonomy, meaning that leaders are free to draw on their contextual wisdom to inform their leadership actions and approaches while addressing the framework objectives.

The Swan Song of A.J. Wentworth
The last of the humorous fictional memoirs of a hapless assistant schoolmaster. It is to be A.J. Wentworth's final appearance on the scholastic scene. Once more he dons his cap and gown - or, to be more precise, Rawlinson's cap and gown - and returns to Burgrove for just one more time. His final term includes a brief but broadening visit to the United States, in addition to the usual intellectual cut and thrust of the classroom. Whether he's causing a stir on Fifth Avenue, or merely 'trying to knock a bit of sense into a bunch of thick-headed boys,' A.J. Wentworth fumbles, blusters and generally carries on. A comic study in blinkered English manners, the Wentworth Papers will delight fans of P.G. Wodehouse or Grossmiths' Mr Pooter. First introduced to readers in the pages of Punch magazine, it was later dramatized for both BBC Radio and ITV drama. Editorial reviews: 'A splendid comic hero ... cannot fail to engage the sympathy of everyone who has ever sat in a classroom either as master or pupil ... Few books have made me laugh out loud quite so often.' Evening Standard 'I was often helpless with laughter. Not a book to be read in public.' The Oldie 'A truly comic invention.' The Guardian 'Masterly caricature.' Times Literary Supplement 'Wentworth turns out to be the hero of a work certain to be pigeon-holed as a minor classic by which people usually mean a classic more readable than the major kind ... a man Mr Pooter would regard with awe but nevertheless recognise as a brother.' Spectator 'A book of such hilarious nature that I had to give up reading it in public.' New Statesman 'One of the funniest books ever.' Sunday Express

Education and Development in India: Critical Issues in Public Policy and Development
Drawing on empirical, interdisciplinary research, this book presents a critical review of some of the major issues that are of interest to researchers, policymakers and planners in developing as well as advanced countries, including specifically in India. It provides an in-depth review of some of the major development policy issues in education in general, and in India in particular, over the past 2-3 decades. Besides presenting an overview of the educational developments in India that reflects issues such as growth, equity, efficiency, foreign aid, decentralization, center-state relations, financing, and cost recovery, the book puts forward in-depth analyses of education poverty, interrelations between education and poverty, low level of outcomes in elementary education, effects of structural adjustment policies and approaches on education, south-south cooperation, etc. It also critically discusses changes in policies relating to financing higher education, external assistance for education, and how the growth of private higher education is affecting society at large. The dichotomy between public policy and action is also highlighted in many chapters. On the whole, while the importance of education is being increasingly recognized, the state does not seem to be as willing to foot the bill for education as the households and even the private sector. Occasionally contrasting with international evidence on, for example, financing higher education, private higher education, or the effects of neo-liberal policies, the book offers an interesting read for a wider audience.

Improving Human Performance in Dynamic Tasks: Applications in Management and Industry
This book is about improving human decision making and performance in complex, dynamic tasks. The defining characteristics of a dynamic decision task are that there are a number of decisions required, that decisions are interdependent and that the environment in which the decision is made is transient and feedback is pervasive. Examples of dynamic tasks include the sustainable management of renewable resources and how businesses might allocate resources for research and development (R&D) projects. Decision making in dynamic tasks can be improved through training with system dynamics-based interactive learning environments (ILE's) that include systematic debriefing. Some key features of the book include its didactic approach, numerous tables, figures, and the multidimensional evaluative model. Researchers can use the developed evaluation model to gauge various decision-aiding technologies. How to Improve Human Performance in Dynamic Tasks appeals to those interested in the design and evaluation of simulation-based decision support systems, as well as policy makers, students, researchers, and industrialists concerned by the issue of improving human performance in organizational tasks.

The Papers of A.J. Wentworth, B.A.
The classic fictional memoirs of a hapless schoolmaster. There is chalk in his fingernails and paper darts fill the air as A.J. Wentworth, mathematics master at Burgrove Preparatory School, unwittingly opens the doors that lead not to knowledge but to chaos and confusion. In his collected papers he sets out the truth about the fishing incident in the boot room, the real story about the theft of the headmaster's potted plant, and even the answer to the sensitive question of whether or not Mr Wentworth was trying to have carnal knowledge of matron on that one, memorable occasion. A comic study in blinkered English manners, the Wentworth Papers will delight fans of P.G. Wodehouse or Grossmiths' Mr Pooter.

Words Matter: Embracing the Power of Conversation
This book delves into the power of the conversation and the words we use. There is a tremendous need for people to be more thoughtful and careful with their words. Electronic transactions tend to be shorter and quicker and in many cases, delivered without much thought as to the impact of the message and the words. As soon as the words are spoken or written and received, it is too late to take them back. In addition, most conflicts and challenging situations could be avoided, minimized, and/or deescalated with an effective conversation. Effective and meaningful conversations do not come naturally but it is a skill that can be learned through education and practice. This book will walk you through effective principles and practices that can be used to enhance the probability of a good outcome from a challenging situation and conversation. The words we choose do make a difference and this fact needs to be at the forefront of our thought process as we enter a face to face conversation, compose an email, and send a text or place a social media post. This book will provide the tools necessary to begin a practice of meaningful and effective conversations.

The Retirement of A.J. Wentworth
The second of the humorous fictional memoirs of a hapless schoolmaster. A. J. Wentworth, formerly teacher of mathematics at Burgrove prep school for boys, now passes his retirement years in a typically English rural village where somehow he seems unable to stay out of trouble. Wentworth lurches from mishap to misunderstanding, whether at the Conservative Association or the local dramatic society, the cricket club dinner or the vicarage Christmas Party. His piece de resistance proves to be the escorting of two schoolboys on a trip to Switzerland that unexpectedly detours into Italy. A comic study in blinkered English manners, the Wentworth Papers will delight fans of P.G. Wodehouse or Grossmiths' Mr Pooter. First introduced to readers in the pages of Punch magazine, it was later dramatized for both BBC Radio and ITV drama.

California Foundations of Education: Diverse from the Start
California is one of the most important states when it comes to the development of classroom curriculum, yet there is very little literature that looks at its development, leaving state-based pre-service teachers without a resource for studying the phenomenon. California Foundations of Education fills that gap. It discusses important questions such as how has the unique diverse social history of California impacted the development of its public schools? Did California have legalized school segregation? Is there anything about the political structure of California that may have an impact on education that is not discussed in traditional texts? How are textbooks selected in California? The organization of this textbook is structured by the similar topics as traditional textbooks, but approaches every topic by focusing on education in California, and especially how it is impacted by California's diversity. It will serve as an important volume to inspire similar studies in other states, and it will be a vital resource for teachers and future teachers in California in helping them to understand how education in California has developed.

Campuses of Consent: Sexual and Social Justice in Higher Education
This new book for scholars and university administrators offers a provocative critique of sexual justice Language and policy in higher education around the concept of consent. Complicating the idea that consent is plain common sense, Campuses of Consent shows how normative and inaccurate concepts about gender, gender identity, and sexuality erase queer or trans students' experiences and perpetuate narrow, regressive gender norms and individualist frameworks for understanding violence.Theresa A. Kulbaga and Leland G. Spencer prove that consent in higher education cannot be meaningfully separated from larger issues of institutional and structural power and oppression. While sexual assault advocacy campaigns, such as It's On Us, federal legislation from Title IX to the Clery Act, and more recent affirmative-consent Measures tend to construct consent in individualist terms, as something given or received by individuals, the authors imagine consent as something that can be constructed systemically and institutionally: in classrooms, campus communication, and shared campus spaces.

Mainly though, this is a book for those who are committed to seeing all boys grow and thrive while avoiding what has been termed as toxic male culture in this, and other, countries. While this book largely focuses on understanding the roles that schooling and upbringing play on boys' development, it explores this complex topic with a clear belief that there are myriad factors that influence each boy's developmental trajectory and that there are many ways to promote healthy, prosocial development among all young men.

Practical Wisdom for Conducting Research on Service Learning: Pursuing Quality and Purpose
For scholars seeking to undertake consequential research in service-learning and community engagement (SLCE) at a time when there is widening interest in and increasing acceptance of research in this field as a primary area of scholarship, this book provides accounts by preeminent scholars about the trajectories of their research, their methodologies, lessons learned along the way, as well as their views about the future direction of the field.The contributors to this volume represent a range of disciplines and fields including education, history, organizational leadership, political science, philanthropic studies, psychology, and public health, as well as both qualitative and quantitative traditions, and offer models of scholarly learning that contribute to a knowledge base that can guide practice and further the broader public purposes of the academy. They articulate how they view their research on SLCE as having broader purposes that matter to them personally as well as professionally and illustrate how the why and to what end of their research can evolve as a program of research develops and matures across time. They identify key choices they made in terms of inquiry and methodology, describe both successes and challenges in establishing and navigating a SLCE research agenda across their careers, and share lessons learned from their research journey to advance the field both domestically and abroad. Emerging from these narratives is a theme of practical wisdom that arises through the learning of researchers, students and communities as they engage with complex social contexts.

Leadership in Higher Education from a Transrelational Perspective
There is an abundance of research saying that not only is leadership in higher education ineffective but also that it actually undermines the essential work that should be happening in universities. Christopher M. Branson, Maureen Marra, Margaret Franken and Dawn Penney provide a new insight into leadership that has proven to be far more effective for all involved - the transrelational approach to leadership. This new way of leading places an emphasis on the importance of the relationships that the leader develops with each and every person they are leading. However, in order to apply this new way of leading, higher education institutions must change some of the key ways they work. This book provides direction in how this can happen, what benefits would result, and offers a view on what the future for higher education might be if such changes to leadership are not made. Leadership in Higher Education from a Transrelational Perspective both critiques the likely implications of adopting this transrelational form of leadership into a higher educational institution and discusses the implications of not doing so. Although a transrelational approach to leadership might seem daunting for higher education institutions to adopt, is there any other choice? The authors argue that it is inconceivable for institutions founded upon promoting human development as a consequence of research to ignore such research that not only questions the suitability of current leadership practices but also offers a more effective alternative.

The Little Book of Restorative Justice for Colleges and Universities, Second Edition: Repairing Harm and Rebuilding Trust in Response to Student Misconduct
A Practitioner's Reference and Guide to Implement Restorative Justice on Campus Here's a call to colleges and universities to consider implementing restorative practices on their campuses, ensuring fair treatment of students and staff while minimizing institutional liability, protecting the campus community, and boosting morale, from an associate dean of student affairs who has put these models to work on his campus. Restorative justice is a collaborative decision-making process that includes victims, offenders, and others who are seeking to hold offenders accountable by having them (a) accept and acknowledge responsibility for their offenses, (b) to the best of their ability, repair the harm they caused to victims and communities, and (c) work to reduce the risk of re-offense by building positive social ties to the community. David Karp writes in his introduction, As a student affairs administrator, I have become deeply committed to the concept and practice of restorative justice. I have experienced how it can work given the very real pressures among campus conduct administrators to manage high case loads, ensure fair treatment, minimize institutional liability, protect the campus community, boost morale in a division with high turnover, and help students learn from their mistakes without creating insurmountable obstacles to their future successes.

Should Robots Replace Teachers?: AI and the Future of Education
Developments in AI, robotics and big data are changing the nature of education. Yet the implications of these technologies for the teaching profession are uncertain. While most educators remain convinced of the need for human teachers, outside the profession there is growing anticipation of a technological reinvention of the ways in which teaching and learning take place. Through an examination of technological developments such as autonomous classroom robots, intelligent tutoring systems, learning analytics and automated decision-making, Neil Selwyn highlights the need for nuanced discussions around the capacity of AI to replicate the social, emotional and cognitive qualities of human teachers. He pushes conversations about AI and education into the realm of values, judgements and politics, ultimately arguing that the integration of any technology into society must be presented as a choice. Should Robots Replace Teachers? is a must-read for anyone interested in the future of education and work in our increasingly automated times.

Opportunity for All: A Framework for Quality and Equality in Education
Drawing on decades of research, policy, and practice, Jennifer A. O'Day and Marshall S. Smith show how strategies for pursuing educational quality and equal outcomes for all students can be linked, presenting an ambitious idea of the future of American education and a comprehensive theory of change for enacting that vision. The authors argue that systemic causes require systemic solutions. Analyzing the failures of past efforts to address and remedy systemic inequality, O'Day and Smith maintain that our current standards-based policy framework needs to be connected to a continuous improvement approach to build on and scale up successes and to address gaps in outcomes. They emphasize the value of focusing on a small set of high-leverage issues that are particularly salient for underserved students, and they call for deeper coordination between schools and community-based organizations to mobilize a coherent response to in-school and out-of-school inequities. The authors outline a change strategy that incorporates a balance of pressure and support from three sources: government and administrative policy, professional accountability and networking, and collective engagement of parents and other stakeholders. The authors combine discussion of research with examples of promising practices and progress in school systems across the country, and offer opportunities for readers to begin and sustain improvement efforts.

Mindsets and Practices of the Contemporary School Counselor: A Practical Guide
A New Era in School Counseling offers in-depth knowledge of how the school counselor, who is deeply embedded in all aspects of the educational system, can work most efficiently and effectively in the schools. This new edition underscores the heightened focus on leadership and collaboration, as well as the increased attention to meeting the mental health needs of school-age students, particularly meeting the spiritual and religious development of students by way of the school counseling program. Growing technology brings about increased responsibility for the school counselor. This text takes a more comprehensive look at school counselors' roles in meeting the need of K-12 students in this digital age. The significant changes in the school counseling profession that are reflected in this text include: The change from the three developmental domains adopted by the American School Counselor Association in 1997 (Cambell & Dahir, 1997) to the American School Counseling Association Mindsets and Behaviors for Student Success (ASCA, 2014) have impacted both the structure and content of student competencies. This significant foundational change to the ASCA National Model impacts a variety of professional practice areas addressed by this new text edition, including action plan and results report templates, and multiple other forms provided by way of this edition change. This text reflects on the recently revised Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP, 2016) Standards, particularly noting the significant reduction in the number of preparation standards from 2009 to 2016 for the specialty of School Counseling. This text redefines the invisible student, broadening the concept of universal academic achievement. Characteristics that better clarify students who may not be reaching their full potential as another subpopulation of student at risk are addressed. The creation of ASCA University, or ASCA U, specialist training is highlighted to aid in meeting the growing emphasis on leadership and heightened competence. Specific training topics are highlighted to meet growing demands for competence in these areas.

The Inevitable Solar School: Building the Sustainable Schools of the Future, Today
The Inevitable Solar School: Building the Sustainable School of the Future, Today describes the two major forces that are driving public and private schools and other buildings to solar energy. These forces are the recognition of climate change and the cost advantage of on-site solar energy. Either force would be sufficient reason on its own to change the school market, but in combination they become indominable. Sustainability has emerged as a widely accepted theme in school building design. Daylight and views, indoor air quality, responsible life-cycle materials selection, and energy and water efficiency are expected features. This book adds on-site solar energy, sufficient in many instances to meet all of a school's energy requirement, as a critical element of sustainability. The zero energy school is the sustainable school of the future. Contrary to common expectations, zero energy sustainable schools are being built at costs that are competitive with regional school cost averages. This outcome requires teamwork between school administrators and their design and construction professionals, and the use of deliberate planning and procurement processes. Five case studies spanning the U.S. demonstrate that the sustainable school of the future is here today.
