The management of a school, in all its facets, is an enormous task, and when things go wrong in the staffroom, it is highly likely that the institution could become one of the tragic statistics on dysfunctional schools.
The McKinsey report on global education systems showed that an education system could be turned around in a relatively short space of time if the following staff-related efforts occur:
- obtain the best people to provide teaching;
- develop those people to teach effectively;
- have the necessary systems and support in place to ensure that every child benefits from effective teaching.
A principal must navigate three different sets of legislation in managing the various employee categories at the school. Human Resources Management in Public Schools: A Practical Guide provides an overview of the most important laws and regulations affecting schools in this area and explains their practical implications.
Written by a well-known author and practitioner in the field of school governance and management, this book brings invaluable practical advice on the most pertinent areas of human resources management in public schools.
