The road to school system improvement can be a rocky one. The nature of schools and school systems makes them very difficult to change. These are complex organisations, subject to a range of demands and opportunities from multiple stakeholders – from parents and governments, from local communities and business, from other educational authorities and institutions, and, of course, from their staff and students. Effective educational leaders appreciate this complexity and work with colleagues and others across and beyond their education system to make a positive and meaningful difference. Pathways to School System Improvement is designed for educators with an interest and responsibility for school system improvement. It looks at effective strategies for implementing system improvement and presents approaches for capitalising on the successes and overcoming the shortcomings of initiative-based reforms.

‘ I see now that the fear I felt was unnecessary. I see that letting go can be as natural as the way water flows along the riverbed. Life doesn’t need to be a struggle. Letting go is the strongest thing I’ve ever done...' As ‘modern’ women, being truly happy and successful can feel like something of a contradiction. We’re supposed to be independent, confident and strong, but we also face relentless pressures to look young, slim and beautiful.Could it be time for us to face our insecurities and accept our imperfections, to respect ourselves no matter what, and learn to love the skin we’re in? Do we have the guts to let go and be happy? Exploring the issues of love, loss, healing and happiness, this manifesto for freedom from one of feminism’s liveliest voices will guide you on the path to feeling newly, truly confident.

In politics, if you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman. Margaret Thatcher Instead of getting married again, I’m going to find a woman I don’t like and just give her a house. Rod Stewart Ever been at a loss for words? Ever wished that the perfect wry remark or putdown would spring to mind? The great, the good, the intellectual and the downright insulting can all be found in Brit Wit. With wonderful one-liners from such formidable figures as Churchill and Shakespeare to more recent luminaries of British stage, screen and society including Michael Caine, Victoria Wood and Eddie Izzard, Brit Wit celebrates all that makes Britain brilliant.
