Creative partnerships was an important initiative that helped to bring creativity into many schools and classrooms. However, the initiative didn't exist in a vacuum and David Parker's book traces the origins and explores the legacy with skill and attention. It is an impressive record of the initiative and a sound foundation on which creativity in the classroom can be taken forward now. * Estelle Morris, former Secretary of State for Education *
Protecting and developing young people's creative-mindedness is one of the most important jobs in the world. David Parker distills the lessons of the ground-breaking Creative Partnerships programme into vital, practical lessons for the future. If you care about creativity, read this book. * Guy Claxton, author of What's the Point of School? *
David Parker's new book, Creative Partnerships in Practice: Developing creative learners, offers a rare and enlightening look into the operation and impact of a large scale project in creative education. Relying on a combination of statistics and case study methods, Parker shows how this remarkable program affected pupils, teachers, administrators and parents over a 10 year period. It will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in creative education or in arts and cultural education, as well as educators who wish to enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning in their schools. * Larry O'Farrell *
This book is a treasure of real-world case studies offering deep insights from one of the world's most significant creative education programme. I am extremely impressed with the readability of its presentation, scope of coverage and depth of research. It's a must-read book for anyone interested in strategic creative education, its impact, potential and sustainability. * Professor Samuel Leong, Director, UNESCO Observatory for Research in Local Cultures & Creativity in Education *
