Flip the System - Changing Education from the Ground Up

Author(s): René Kneyber (Editor); Jelmer Evers (Editor)

Education

Education is threatened on a global scale by forces of neoliberalism, through high stakes accountability, privatization and a destructive language of learning. In all respects, a GERM (Global Education Reform Movement) has erupted from international benchmark rankings such as PISA, TIMMS and PIRL, causing inequity, narrowing of the curriculum and teacher deprofessionalization on a truly global scale.

In this book, teachers from around the world and other educational experts such as Andy Hargreaves, Ann Lieberman, Stephen Ball, Gert Biesta, Tom Bennett and many more, make the case to move away from this uneducational economic approach, to instead embrace a more humane, more democratic approach to education. This approach is called ¿flipping the system¿, a move that places teachers exactly where they need to be - at the steering wheel of educational systems worldwide.

This book will appeal to teachers and other education professionals around the world.
