Описание: Extends beyond the presentation of expert opinion and appeals to an audience of academics and practitioners. Theory building, policy applications and praxis are addressed in this highly adoptable book by leading scholars.
Описание: A practitioner and an academic come together to explore a highly successful initiative that reduced truancy, delinquency and school-exclusion and show how it developed, within a school with severe psycho-socio-economic disadvantages. It centres around a school-based social work service, involving 'teacher-social workers', whose primary aims were educational but recognised that many of our children inherited an 'educational alienation' from parents, who like all parents want only the best for their children, often had negative experiences themselves, which initially prevented them entering into an'alliance' with the school. This book shows how a family-teacher-community alliance can be effectively developed, with measured improvements, not only in child and family functioning, but crucially in school attendance, educational success, so that we vastly increased the numbers of children 'liking school', contributing to their educational, social and emotional well-being. The book does not try to present a 'perfect' world, and unusually instead of offering an homogenised text, each other writes in their own style. Crucially the front-line practitioner voice is heard loud and clear, as are the voices of children and parents who often live at the marginssociety, but who increasingly welcome the benefits of 'liking School'. This is a book for the experienced and new teachers who will find themselves in a new world where the school and education are the start and finish of child protection to ensure that 'Every Child Matters'.
