A Good Education : A New Model of Learning to Enrich Every Child Paperback / softback


This book provides an answer to one of the key questions of our time: namely, what constitutes a good education.

Presenting a `four-dimensional' model, it directly considers the essential elements a good education should include.

Through forging this framework and outlaying its origins, implications and practice, the book explains how a good contemporary education can be defined and implemented.

From the premise that such educational essentials are neither the preserve of the elite nor a minimum standard, White's exploration keeps the child at the heart of the discussion, focusing on every pupil's worth, identity, interactions and development.

The author offers a detailed and rigorous perspective reflecting on extensive professional experience, starting with a consideration of the current educational climate and progressing through the book's three parts:looking for a good educationcreating a model of good educationapplications, implications and implementation of the model. A Good Education recognises the transformative power of education and reflects on the importance of human factors: teachers' provision for their pupils and students' ability to flourish.

This book is addressed to those actively engaged in or concerned about educational provision: graduates entering teaching, school leaders, policy-makers and parents.

It also speaks more broadly to all those who know that a good education really matters.
