Future Directions of Educational Change brings together timely discussions on social justice, professional capital, and systems change from some of the leading scholars in the field of education. Engaging in theory and evidence-based debates covering issues such as literacy education, whole system reform, and teacher leadership, this volume argues that quality and equity are equally important in reshaping existing education systems both within the United States and globally. The authors offer contextual analyses of current educational research and practice while looking toward the future and offering thought-provoking arguments for challenging and rectifying the systemic inequalities within education today.
"The struggle to both understand and change school systems so they are socially just and organized for all students is beautifully displayed here. This is a critically important book for our time!"
"Thinking about educational change within an international context has never been so critically important. Future Directions of Educational Change offers new perspectives and important insights into a changing global landscape. This book has to be on the bookshelf of those charged with, and responsible for, educational transformation, change and improvement."
