Inside the autonomous school: making sense of a global educational trend.
Tuesday, 19 June 2018, 5 – 7pm
Over recent years, education systems across the globe have experimented with the concept of the autonomous school. As this radical trend in policy gains momentum, Inside the Autonomous School considers whether the model is achieving its desired aims. Drawing on evidence from an in-depth, longitudinal study of an academy in England, this book traces the developments which took place in the school on its journey from ‘failing’, to achieving an inspection rating of ‘outstanding’. The authors present a rich first-hand account of the impacts that various policies have had on the school and situate analyses within a wider national and international context.
About the authors
The authors Dr Maija Salokangas (Trinity College Dublin) and Prof Mel Ainscow (University of Manchester)present a rich, first-hand account of the impacts that various policies and practices have had on the autonomous school and at the same time, situate their accounts and analyses within a wider national and international context. This leads them to consider what can be done to ensure that school autonomy consistently promotes excellence and equity within education systems.
