Product reviews for About Our Schools

Louise Stoll, Professor of Professional Learning, UCL Institute of Education

I was hooked from the start in this epic educational journey. Tim Brighouse and Mick Waters are honest, passionate and crystal clear on the values and beliefs that underpin their mission. Blending evidence, including fascinating perspectives from highly influential witnesses, with story-like reflections on their own wealth of experiences, they delve into key themes that have shaped education in England as we know it. Tim and Mick fill their exploration of the history, complexities, challenges and potential of the current system with rich insights, while their bold suggestions to reimagine schooling for a more equitable system make for a rousing conclusion. And, of course, as many expect and admire from these two champions of education, the authors’ hope, ambition and collaborative partnership shine through. About Our Schools is just the book to provoke powerful reflection, courageous conversations and concerted action.
