Product description

Review

This excellent book is an exemplary collaboration between teachers, school leaders, and educational researchers. By pointing to a vast range of challenges, tensions, and spaces for hope and possibility, it gets to the heart of what’s important in contemporary Australian education. The book is an urgent call to ‘flip the system’ for the creation of more equitable and generative schooling for all Australian children and young people. It is an important and timely reminder of the power we have as educators, both collectively and individually, to engage in this crucial work.

Associate Professor Nicole Mockler, University of Sydney

This book will be a very welcome addition to the professional libraries of Australian educators and schools. It has a combination of new voices and new thinking from experienced academics that can be read sequentially or can be read by dropping into particular issues and themes. Its commitment to providing a forum for these voices as they contest some of the big ideas, trends, myths and confusions of education will add depth to the broader educational debate and professional thinking in the next decade.

Christine Cawsey AM, Principal, Rooty Hill High School

In far too many countries around the world, education as the practice of freedom has become degraded into an alienating experience for teachers and students alike. Australia has not been immune to these pressures, but its educators are rallying and providing a powerful set of new narratives and agendas for the future of our young people and our endangered planet. For all of those intrigued by the prospect of uplifting the human condition through education for a rising generation, 'Flip the System Australia' is an indispensable guide and a clarion call to action.

Professor Dennis Shirley, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Educational Change, Lynch School of Education, Boston College

By giving voice to the real work of teachers while recognizing students as individuals, Flip the System Australia invites us to embrace the rich, nuanced, complexity of teaching and learning. By treating the reader as a trusted and engaged colleague, this book elevates the conversation beyond "what works" to begin to explore new possibilities of what education might be. As with the other volumes of Flip the System, one will not find a simple compendium of platitudes, prescriptions, or advice; but rather a surfacing of important questions and issues. In doing so, this book reminds us that education is fundamentally about people, potential, and possibilities.

Dr. Ron Ritchhart, Senior Research Associate, Harvard University, and author of Creating Cultures of Thinking
