Performance management has emerged as one of the dominant themes in education systems today. A greater emphasis is now being placed on the performance of the individual teacher. This book is designed to be informative and supportive but also to raise issues and concerns about performance management. Organized into three parts, this book covers: the theory and practice of managing performance in schools, a series of case studies in which a wide range of effective practice is described, and comparisons between four international perspectives.
