  4. The Power of Voice in Schools: Listening, Learning, and Leading Together

    For nearly four decades, Russ Quaglia has been laying the groundwork to inform, reform and transform schools through student voice. That deep commitment is reflected in this inspirational book. Quaglia and his coauthors at the Quaglia Institute for School Voice & Aspirations deftly synthesise the thoughts and feelings of hundreds of thousands of stakeholders and offer a vision for schools where everyone’s voice matters. They posit that students, teachers, administrators and parents must work and learn together in ways that promote deep understanding and creativity. Making this collaborative effort successful, however, requires widespread recognition that all stakeholders have something to teach and they all have a role to play in moving the entire school forward.

  5. Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools, 2nd Edition

    In this second edition, Parrett and Budge show you how your school can achieve similar results. Expanding on their original framework’s still-critical concepts of actions and school culture, they incorporate new insights for addressing equity, trauma and social-emotional learning. These fresh perspectives combine with lessons learned from twelve additional high-poverty, high-performing schools to form the updated and enhanced Framework for Collective Action. Emphasising students’ social, emotional and academic learning as the hub for all action in high-performing, high-poverty schools, the authors describe how educators can work within the expanded framework to address the needs of all students, but particularly those who live in poverty.

    In Forces of influence, Fred Ende and Meghan Everette contend that schoolwide success starts with relationships - not only between students and adults but also among all adults up and down the education hierarchy. It’s by leveraging these relationships that educators can influence outcomes and effect real change. But how can educators make sure they exert their influence astutely and sensitively, navigating education’s priorities and pressures while keeping their work focused on the mission? This thought-provoking book helps readers navigate this tricky terrain, introducing four ‘forces’, or levels, of influence and explaining how educators can use them to support one another’s practice and push for positive outcomes for all learners.
