Improving School Governance Summary


Improving School Governance: How Better Governors Make Better Schools by Nigel Gann (Hamdon Education Ltd., UK)

This text is about governing schools - about how a body made up of "ordinary" people with no professional educational experience can make a postitive contribution to the management of schools. The core of the book lays out a strategic model of school governance and considers the three key roles of planning, monitering and evaluating. Practical examples and sample procedures which governing bodies can adapt are provided. The book also looks at: the accountability of govenors; their formal duties; how they should behave in schools; the crucial relationship between govenors, staff, headteachers, communities and local authority; and the issue of inspection.
