    Review by Street Nane : RAPTORon 01/04/2019
    I do think it is an excellent and must read publication for school owners, school leaders and educators and integrate the suggestions of the author into the strategic plans of schools entering the Fourth Technological Digital Age. We are waiting for a new publication. Bill Gates warned us that things (digital systems and processes change at the speed of light). Please more of this on data management. Prof.Chris Jacobs
