Publisher Description

Through a series of conversations and case studies Maxine McKew documents the transformation that's now underway in classrooms around Australia and examines the strategies that are helping to lift academic performance, particularly in some of Australia's most challenged schools. Class Act invites reflection on one of our most pressing national dilemmas-how we replicate success across a fragmented educational system and reverse the decline in student performance. With its frank accounts of the joys and pitfalls of learning in the twenty-first century, Class Act will appeal to parents, teachers and policy-makers alike.

'The ideas from schools and education leaders so well expressed in this book are vital to the education debate and inform it well.' DAVID GONSKI AC
