"Every school a great school" is not just a slogan, but an aspiration for the next stage of education reform, in which each student has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

The book argues that, for 'every school a great school' to become a reality, requires a move from individual school improvement efforts and short term objectives to a sustainable system-wide response that seeks to re-establish a balance between national prescription and schools leading reform.

Achieving this goal requires strategies that not only continue to raise standards, but also build capacity within the system.

David Hopkins identifies four key educational 'drivers' that, if pursued, have the potential to deliver 'every school a great school': Personalised learning, Professionalised teaching, Networking and innovation, and, Intelligent accountability.

The author believes that it is the responsibility of system leaders to mould the four drivers to fit individual school contexts.

It is this leadership that enables systemic reform to be generic in terms of overall strategy and specific in adapting to individual and particular situations."Every School a Great School" is inspirational reading for head teachers, senior leaders and managers, researchers, lecturers and those with a passionate interest in improving education for all.
