“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest”, vorbele celebre ale lui Benjamin Franklin sunt definitorii pentru o societate care dorește construirea unei fundații solide pentru o lume mai bună, iar Shaping School Culture de Terrence E. Deal și Kent D. Peterson oferă o privire de ansamblu ancorată în prezent și cu o suită de soluții la problemele pe care le întâmpină mediul educațional modern.
“Deal and Peterson use contemporary examples, cases, and policy trends to provide a fresh perspective on schools. Throughout the volume the reader is re–oriented to the elements of school culture that matter most. Folklore, heroes, revival of old ways, paradox, and even the avoidance of toxic cultures all have a role to play. An essential read.”
SHARON CONLEY, PHD, professor, Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, University of California, Santa Barbara
The tiny community of Ganado is in northeast Arizona’s high desert. It is nestled in the midst of an expansive reservation twenty-seven miles from Window Rock—the largest town in Navajo lands. This is picturesque country, dry and beautiful, dotted with traditional hogans and small homes. To outsiders, the town of Ganado would be one of the last places expected to house an award-winning elementary school. The town has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. Forty-six percent of the families do not have running water, and 35 percent across the district’s one thousand square miles have no access to electricity. Despite the odds, Ganado Primary School is the town’s pride and joy and has been continually recognized for its excellence.
