National Testing in Schools: An Australian Assessment

Over the last two decades, large-scale national, or provincial, standardised testing has become prominent in the schools of many countries around the globe. National Testing in Schools: An Australian Assessment draws on research to consider the nature of national testing and its multiple effects, including: media responses and constructions such as league tables of performance; pressures within school systems and on schools; effects on the work and identities of principals and teachers; and impacts on the experience of schooling for many young people, including those least advantaged.

Literacy, Leading and Learning

How might educational leaders and teacher improve literacy achievement in schools serving communities experiencing high levels of poverty? This question is the focus of this book. Drawing on long-term case studies of four primary schools located in these communities, this book describes the difference between what is commonly practiced and those practices that have a greater chance of supporting young people's literacy learning. 

The Relationality of Race in Education Research

This edited collection examines the ways in which the local and global are key to understanding race and racism in the interesectional context of contemporary education. Analysing a broad range of examples, it highlights how race and racism comprise a relational phenomenon that interconnects local, national and global contexts and ideas.
