This book offers a new perspective on the management of schools by bringing together the knowledge and understanding of school effectiveness and community education. Tony Townsend argues that the core activity of the school, to provide a learning environment for children, should be supplemented by educational activities that service the needs of the community as a whole. He offers a model for the development of the 'core-plus' school, including practical ideas for school leaders to build strategies for improving school programme possiblities and processes to encourage greater community involvement.

Review quote

"Not only is his vision provocative, but his rationale is unique... He offers detailed descriptions of implementation and design concerns such as ice-breaking activities, structures for governing the core-plus school, methods for surveying a community to identify members' priorities and guidelines for brainstorming.."-"Journal of Curriculum Studies, 1996
