This research-based study focuses on multiracial primary schools, where staff and governors face an unprecedented range of innovations in challenging inner-city and culturally diverse contexts. The authors describe how strategies for managing the planning process reflected a tension between setting a direction for the future and retaining flexibility. They question the rationalistic assumptions behind many development planning initiatives, suggesting that a more flexible approach is needed in turbulent environments. The book represents a contribution to the national and international debate on school improvement.
