Additional Book Details

`I waited with great anticipation to receive Jon Prosser′s book, School Culture. The wait was worth it and I wasn′t to be disappointed... This is a fine book bringing to a reader a credible and solid set of work′ - Youth and Policy

`The most helpful book on genuine school improvement that I have ever read′ - LDR National College for School Leadership

`Jon Prosser has put together an eclectic volume. School Culture is not isolated from out of school forces, most of the authors argue Jon Prosser and Terry Warbuton′s piece analyzing the visual representation of schools and teaching shows this in a looking-glass manner. The different chapters challenge us to think again about what we mean by ethos and atmosphere. What the volume demonstrates is just how difficult and challenging it is to define what constitutes a school′s culture′ - Journal of Education for Teaching

School culture is today one of the most important themes in education and educational research. This book draws on a wide range of contemporary perspectives to provide an insight into the key issues and concepts which underpin school culture.

The first part of the book is concerned with culture as an holistic concept. The second part adopts the stance that school culture is the sum of its subcultures.The contributors focus on significant groups such as teachers and students, or theme, for example sexuality, and examine in depth the nature and character of schooling.
