Product reviews for About Our Schools

Roy Leighton, Co-chair of the Cambridge Peace and Education Research Group (CPERG) and co-author of 101 Days to Make a Change

Tim Brighouse and Mick Waters are two sages of the educational world that are resisting the call to ‘retire to the woods’. We are the richer for their delayed departure. 

About Our Schools has been crafted to provide information, inspiration and direction for anyone interested in education and social change. These stimulating and informative interviews are testimony to the power of dialogue to connect and transform individuals and communities. These two wise men provide us, in the final chapter, with the foundation stones and steps we need to take in order to continue our shared journey of school improvement. It would be fitting testimony to their efforts over the past 45 years if we followed their advice and good counsel. 

About Our Schools is essential reading for those interested in understanding our educational past and shaping our educational, social and economic future. The fact that the royalties will go to support the work of Barnardo’s and the Compassionate Education Foundation is another good reason to buy the book.
