This month let’s take a break from new fiction and picture books for young people, and instead focus on books for anyone fascinated by the state of play in education today. The first asks the very important question, are we providing the best education system we can in Australia? The answer, according to one of Australia’s leading educators, Alan Reid AM, is not pretty. In Changing Australian Education, he critiques the current situation and proposes a new direction in policy and practice that will generate plenty of conversation for you and your colleagues in 2020. And don’t forget the astoundingly honest and readable Teacher by Gabbi Stroud – arguably the most widely read book about education of the last decade.
