  1. The Restless School

    The Restless School

    NOW PUBLISHED - DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE FOR MULTIPLE COPIES. EMAIL OFFERS@JOHNCATT.COM FOR MORE INFO

    What is the cocktail of successful schools and their leaders? They are restless. There is a paradox at their core: they are very secure in their systems, values and successes, yet simultaneously seeking to change and improve. These schools look inwards to secure wise development; they look outwards to seize innovation which they can hew to their own ends and, importantly, make a difference to the children and students they serve. That is the restless school.
