268 p.


The whole idea of strategic management in schools is that each school decides on its own way forward. In doing this it must take into account its present strategic position, present and future external influences and what its stakeholders expect of it. Schools need to be able to plan and implement their own strategies, but they must be achievable.

Strategic Planning for School Improvement provides an understanding of strategic management, how it works and how to carry it out. Case studies include strategic planning in action in two primary schools and two secondary schools. The book then examines the common factors of these studies which can be used to aid strategic planning in any school.
