A new edition of the groundbreaking book that brings organizational learning and systems thinking into classrooms and schools, showing how to keep our nation’s educational system competitive in today’s world.
Revised and updated—with more than 100 pages of new material—for the first time since its initial publication in 2000 comes a new edition of the seminal work acclaimed as one of the best books ever written about education and schools.
Schools That Learn is a unique collaboration between the celebrated management thinker and Fifth Discipline author Peter Senge and a team of renowned educators and organizational change leaders. It describes how schools can adapt, grow, and change in the face of the increasing demands and challenges of our society, and provides tools, techniques and references for bringing new aspirations to life.
““The idea that schools themselves can and must learn is the most important idea in education and this is the classic and indispensable guide to how that happens.”
– Dr. David W. Orr, Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics, Oberlin College
“… A rich, much-needed remedy for the standardized, assembly-line, industrial-age institutions that comprise too much of our school system today. Chock full of useful tools, ideas, and exercises, this book is ideal for the many teachers and parents who are intent on resurrecting and fostering students’ inherent drive to learn. An essential resource.”
– Daniel H. Pink, author of DRIVE and A WHOLE NEW MIND
