Ian Gilbert's There is Another Way shares inspirational ideas from a number of contributors intended to inspire educators to do what they know is right - regardless of the pressures from above.

We are living at a time when loud voices from inside and outside the profession are telling teachers and school leaders "this" is the way education should be done. This is how you should lead a school. This is how you should manage a class. This is how children should learn. This is what you should do to make children behave. These messages are given as if there is only one way to achieve these things - their way.

However, with decades of experience working in all types of school around the globe, the many Associates of Independent Thinking know there is always another way. Ian Gilbert and the Associates combine their collective wisdom and experience to take a fresh look at the present and future of education and invite the reader to think, deeply, on what really matters and to reflect on their practice accordingly. Regardless of the reader's specialism or background, there is something for everyone in this diverse and insightful anthology.
