it's a personal account of a former head teacher who wanted to make a school into a disney land. They ended up building a university within a school and a kind of a city with its own administration and services. Lots of local entrepreneurs were involved in the process.

Excellent read, progressive outlook! Education must be 'transformed' globally, not merely reformed! The example of Grange Primary School in Nottingham is an insightful one where the author brings hope and light to a once helpless case of failing school system, I loved the realistic and common sense approach to creating a curricula, system, k& pedagogies that were both successful and not complicated as I had imagined it to be..

Y ahora, en lo más profundo de una de mis más severas crisis pedagógicas, lo retomé para felizmente encontrar un libro de gran sencillez que bien puedo asumir casi como credo. Cansado de encontrar se ...more

Great book. Read this in about a week. Gerver has loads of great ideas which transformed his school and the lives of the children within his school. Nice to read an education book which isn't just 'This is what we should do' but is 'This is what we did and how well it worked'.
