Why are we waiting? Education research and the lethargy of change

By Tim Patston
Price: $25.91

Dr Patston asks why, in these difficult times, and despite years of research conducted into education by universities and governments, with millions of dollars spent on professional development in schools, we face the prospect of a collapsing and increasingly irrelevant school education system. He discusses limiting factors in current approaches to educational research, in both the university and school sectors. He also explores the role that the current school model of professional development plays, and its failure to introduce effective and meaningful pedagogic change in schools. He believes it is time for a new and truly innovative paradigm to be introduced to schools, giving both support and responsibility to teachers.
