Abstract

Researching Schools is an unusual and worthwhile book, charting what emerges as the glorious failure of an attempt to develop an innovative schools-university partnership. Its 13 chapters reflect, in an admirably honest way, the trials, minor successes and ultimate failure of the partnership (or more correctly series of partnerships) to transform a group of secondary schools into ‘researching schools’. The book is written by five prominent members of the education faculty at the University of Cambridge, the most eminent of whom, Professor Donald McIntyre, died in 2007. While not his last book, and while his is by no means the lead voice in this collaborative publication, Researching Schools encapsulates many of the themes around teacher knowledge McIntyre pursued in his career.
