Here at last is a down-to-earth book, written with humor and largeness of spirit, about the day-to-day practices of schools, which, if reinvented, could make them into dynamic learning environments rather than what they are today. The book looks at how every aspect of school life can be made meaningful for a child´s education in a brave, new world. With a practical and inquisitive approach, the book explores aspects of school life, including experiments, practicals, examinations, civil society, teachers´ training, the library, the art room, the principal´s office, school administration, and so on. The listener is taken on an eye-opening and irresistible tour of the school, to places and spaces we all take for granted but which, perhaps, need to be reinvented for a modern era. The author looks at the small yet important things in schools and their impact on the modern child. How can we reinvent these things bearing in mind that children clearly question their merit and value in their contemporary lives? Do the singing of patriotic songs and flag hoisting mean anything to the child in the audience? Does it connect him or her in any way to the concept of individual and collective freedom and Indian sovereignty? What should schools do? Shankir Musafir brings his extensive experience as an educationist to put together ideas, solutions, and suggestions to create a meaningful educational experience for every teacher, administrator, and schoolchild. 1.

The Horror!...dreaded assessments.

Over the past two decades, Michael Fullan has written influentially about the change that school and district leaders must bring about as formalized achievement standards and new technology transform how schools are run. What he hasn´t done until now is explore and discuss in detail how and why the principal´s role itself must change. Principals are often called the second most crucial in-school influencers (after teachers) of student learning. But what should the principal do in order to maximize student achievement? In The Principal, Fullan explains why the answer lies neither in micromanaging instruction nor in autonomous entrepreneurialism. He also shows systematically how the principal´s role must change and demonstrates how it can be done in short order, at scale. Fullan shows how principals have been boxed into a narrow role that undercuts their ability to develop the whole school. He sheds light on how, in times of crisis, it´s all too easy for principals to do the wrong thing - to take actions that are ineffective or even counterproductive, particularly when they don´t feel entirely in charge. But even in the toughest of external conditions, he shows, there is always leeway for action. Fullan explains how to choose the right versus wrong drivers - loosening focus on accountability and instead concentrating on capacity building. The author explains the three key roles that administrators must play in order to have the biggest impact on student achievement - the learning leader, the district and system player, and the change agent. Throughout The Principal are ´´action items´´ to help leaders implement Fullan´s program effectively as well as provocative discussion questions that enhance the book´s usefulness in professional development and leadership courses.
