Careful attention is paid to issues of class, gender and ethnicity, and the voices of both governors and teachers are heard throughout. The book will be relevant to anyone concerned with critical public policy, the governance and management of schools and/or educational reform, including school governors, teachers and headteachers, policy makers and politicians. All three authors are experienced school governors."@en ;
