Teacher Quality and School Development


About the Series

With the continuing concerns of governments worldwide about teacher quality, raising standards and student well-being and citizenship, the series will provide coherent, authentic, thoughtful and communicative portraits of the contexts and conditions for understanding and enhancing teacher quality and school development. The aim of this series is to bring together, disseminate and communicate original and authoritative experience and research which will ‘speak to’ teachers, teacher educators, other researchers and other research user communities (e.g. teacher associations, and policy making/implementation organisations). This major series will be written by highly reputable scholars from different countries and all authors will ensure that they provide an international context for their work.
