Description

Your school is a lot more than a centre of student learning – it
also represents a self-contained culture, with traditions and expectations that
reflect its unique mission and demographics. In this groundbreaking book,
education experts Steve Gruenert and Todd Whitaker offer tools, strategies and
advice for defining, assessing and ultimately transforming your school’s culture
into one that is positive, forward-looking and actively working to enrich
students’ lives. Drawing from decades of research on organisational cultures
and school leadership, the authors provide everything you need to optimise both
the culture and climate of your school, including



  • “culture-busting”
    strategies to help teachers adopt positive attitudes, outlooks and behaviours

  • a
    framework for pinpointing the type of culture you have, the type that you want
    and the actions you need to take to bridge the two

  • tips
    for hiring, training and retaining teachers who will actively work to improve
    your school’s culture

  • instructions
    on how to create and implement a successful School Culture Rewiring Team.


Though often invisible to the naked eye, a school’s culture
influences everything that takes place under its roof. Whether your school is
urban or rural, prosperous or struggling, School
Culture Rewired
is the ultimate guide in making sure that the culture in
your school is guided first and foremost by what’s best for your students.
