Product reviews for The Birmingham Book

Steve Munby, Visiting Professor, UCL Centre for Educational Leadership, author of Imperfect Leadership and co-author of Imperfect Leadership in Action

The messages in this book are very powerful: school improvement is complex; empathy and understanding of different perspectives is essential if we want our schools to improve and to take their communities with them; centralised approaches rarely work in different contexts. But most of all, this is a book about the importance of leadership and the positive, or negative, impact it can have. With fabulous contributions from truly inspirational school leaders and from expert thinkers, this book helps us to understand the challenges but also, crucially, points to some positive ways forward for urban education.
