              Every school is different, but all schools face very similar challenges. Drawing on their combined teaching experience of over 50 years in both independent and state schools, educationalists David James and Ian Warwick have chosen ten questions that tackle the most difficult chal...lenges that face schools today, and invited leading education experts to address them in stimulating and accessible essays, which are each under a thousand words. With contributions from John Hattie, David Blunkett, Doug Lemov, Sir Anthony Seldon, Sandy Speicher and Tim Hawkes, and many, many more, this insightful and engaging book features exclusive essays with some of the world s most well-known and well-respected thinkers and speakers in education, business and politics, accompanied by thought-provoking introductions. The contributors provide new perspectives on some of the issues that occupy educationalists today; they challenge conventional wisdom, and, above all, put forward practical, workable, evidence-based solutions that can transform teaching and learning. World Class is a powerful manifesto for change that nobody interested in education today can ignore.

              The uncertain and problematic relationship between masculinity and education has come to occupy a prominent position within the sociology of education in recent years. This collection of articles brings together a range of different perspectives, offering both empirical and theor...etical contributions to our understanding of this subject. The chapters seek to broaden our sociological understanding by considering masculinity in relation to a variety of educational settings. These include the role of football in the playground of a junior school, the question of why more boys study AS-level mathematics in England, the rhetoric of New Labour education ministers, and attempts to increase the number of male primary school teachers in Australia. The articles engage with the broader context of gender politics and educational theory and the volume concludes with a study of the move away from class analysis within educational theories in recent decades, taking English white working class masculinity as its main focus. The collection offers a perceptive insight into a crucial area within the sociology of education. This book was originally published as a special issue of the British Journal of Sociology of Education.

              Kif Kehlmann, a young penniless writer, is rung in the middle of the night by the notorious con man and corporate criminal, Siegfried Heidl. About to go to trial for defrauding the banks of $700 million, Heidl offers Kehlmann the job of ghost-writing his memoir. He has six weeks ...to write the book, for which he'll be paid $10,000. But as the writing gets under way, Kehlmann begins to fear that he is being corrupted by Heidl. As the deadline draws closer, he becomes ever more unsure if he is ghost writing a memoir, or if Heidl is rewriting him - his life, his future. Everything that was certain grows uncertain as he begins to wonder: who is Siegfried Heidl - and who is Kif Kehlmann? As time runs out, one question looms above all others: what is the truth? By turns compelling, comic and chilling, this is a haunting journey into the heart of our age.
