Creating a road map for an evidenced-based profession, Dr Gary Jones has brought together a coherent framework for school leaders and teachers based on his years of thinking, writing and implementing evidence based approaches in schools. From major issues around ethics, the use of research evidence and statistics to the formulation of a robust theory of change and associated logic model, this book will assist and develop the wise leaders and teachers we need in our schools, today more than ever.
I love this book. Gary Jones uses the power of story to explain the importance of intelligent use of evidence. He provides examples of how to move beyond intuition in pursuit of sustained, high quality leadership. This is a must-read for all those with the humility to reflect on their approach to leadership in pursuit of a highly effective school.
