This book facilitates a dialogue about teaching and learning in the school environment with an understanding that the art and practice of teaching needs to keep pace with emerging demands and challenges. With social distinctions becoming fluid and workplaces increasingly complex, schools too need to change and develop systems to confront these challenges.

Arun Kapur, a leading educator, weaves together his expertise and experience to offer insights into what makes a `great' school. He provides the tools and resources for directing a school on its journey with a growth plan for all stakeholders in a school-students, teachers, administrators and parents.

Some of the issues discussed are:

- Rationale and purpose of a school
- Curriculum design
- Models of assessment
- Impact of technology
- Teacher training
- Leadership and management
- Individualised learning
- Inclusive education

Kapur suggests a four-pronged approach towards evaluation that combines four wheels of learning: academics, arts, physical fitness and the outreach. -- The Pioneer
The author...weaves together his experience as a teacher to offer insights into the changes required in the school environment to confront increasingly complex social situations. -- Free Press Journal
Transforming Schools...hopes to initiate dialogues on teaching and learning, and points out what goes into making a great school. -- The Indian Express

This book can be of immense help to teachers for it introduces a variety of methods that could pave way for them to achieve success in and out of school. Arun Kapur has rightly pointed out that the school; of yesteryears prepared social layers....The book gives a vision of a great school as it ought to be in the modern times.
