Share Article

Professor Mel Ainscow, awarded the CBE by the Queen of England for services to education, talks with Global Education Publisher CMRubinWorld.

Mel Ainscow, Professor of Education and Co-director of the Centre for Equity in Education at the University of Manchester, discusses his new book, “Towards Self-improving School Systems: Lessons from a City Challenge,” which documents how ten years of research and work were used to better and advance a highly acclaimed city-wide improvement initiative in Manchester, England, involving over 1,100 schools. Ainscow’s model proposes increasing school-to-school collaboration and school-to-local community collaboration so that local businesses, universities and colleges, faith groups, academy sponsors and the media all develop working relationships with the school. These innovative proposals shape this game-changing education story about failing schools that were turned around.
