About the Series

With the continuing concerns of governments worldwide about teacher quality, raising standards and student well-being and citizenship, the series provides coherent, authentic, thoughtful and communicative portraits of the contexts and conditions for understanding and enhancing teacher quality and school development. The aim of this series is to bring together, disseminate and communicate original and authoritative experience and research which will ‘speak to’ teachers, teacher educators, researchers, and other research user communities such as teacher associations, and policy making/implementation organisations.
