Rethinking Secondary Education
Rethinking Secondary Education explores, debates and critiques new and alternative approaches to teaching young people today. The book discusses a human-centred approach to curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and the culture of schools and colleges. It is grounded in theory and empirical research, discussing the need for a curriculum for the future, bridging a gap between mainstream and alternative education, while also offering practical guidance on how these ideas can be put into practice. 'This is a timely, accessible and engaging book of considerable intellectual stature, bold imagination and practical wisdom. Not only does it develop penetrating, elegant analyses of what is wrong with current state controlled and alternative approaches to contemporary education, it also offers imaginative, practical suggestions for a more fulfilling, human centred alternative.'Professor Michael Fielding, Institute of Education, University of London, UK. 'With great sensitivity and force, and in wonderfully clear prose, Scherto Gill and Garrett Thomson explore some fundamental questions about what we want from our education system and what we can expect from it. [...] It is highly recommended for all who are interested in education, whether from a more theoretical point of view or from a more practical point of view'Professor Adrian W. Moore, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford, UK.
