    Today's schools are subject to increasing demand and constraint; their work is more complex and fast changing than ever before; politicians and press demand quick fixes. This book paints the picture of a new integrity for our schools as they face a challenging future. Themes addressed include:

    * schools as places of learning and integrity
    * the curriculum
    * family, child and intercultural perspectives
    * community relations
    * policy and governance.

    The authors demonstrate how a connected approach is necessary if schools are to hold themselves together and play a key role in working with young people to construct a future.
