There is Another Way:The second big book of Independent Thinking

Ian Gilbert’s There is Another Way: The second big book of independent thinking shares inspirational ideas from a number of contributors intended to inspire educators to do what they know is right – regardless of the pressures from above.

We are living at a time when loud voices from inside and outside the profession are telling teachers and school leaders ‘this’ is the way education should be done. This is how you should lead a school. This is how you should manage a class. This is how children should learn. This is what you should do to make children behave. These messages are given as if there is only one way to achieve these things – their way.

However, with decades of experience working in all types of school around the globe, the many Associates of Independent Thinking know there is always another way. Ian Gilbert and the Associates combine their collective wisdom and experience to take a fresh look at the present and future of education and invite the reader to think, deeply, on what really matters and to reflect on their practice accordingly. Regardless of the reader’s specialism or background, there is something for everyone in this diverse and insightful anthology.

Edited by Ian Gilbert with chapters by Mark Anderson, Lisa Jane Ashes, Bethan Baz-Devine, Phil Beadle, Jackie Beere, David Cameron (The Real David Cameron), Paul Clarke, Tait Coles, Mark Creasy, Mark Finnis, Dave Harris, Crista Hazell, Martin Illingworth, Nina Jackson, Rachel Jones, Gill Kelly, Debra Kidd, Jonathan Lear, Trisha Lee, Roy Leighton, Matthew McFall, Sarah Pavey, Simon Pridham, Jim Roberson, Hywel Roberts, Martin Robinson, Dave Whitaker and Phil Wood.

This book is for educators everywhere who know that children deserve something better.
