Snails & Monkey Tails


By Michael Arndt
  • Release Date : 22 March 2022
  • Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

"There are countless books that can teach you the alphabet, but almost none that focus on the tiny designs that run interference among the letterforms: those easily overlooked punctuation and typographic symbols. These symbols, as Michael Arndt proves in this beautiful and endlessly fascinating book, are absolutely indispensable to communication: punctuation turns words into sentences and language into meaning... From commas to semicolons, from slashes to asterisks, from guillemets to octothorpes (named, perhaps, after athlete Jim Thorpe), you’ll never look at punctuation the same way again."—Michael Bierut, partner, P...

Self Managing School


By Brian J. Caldwell
  • Release Date : 17 December 2021
  • Genre: Education

First published in 1988. This book concerns one of today’s key educational issues: how schools can be encouraged to develop their own management skills. The present British government has introduced legislation for schools to manage their own budgets and to enable schools to opt out of LEA control and become independently run and financed by central government. In other countries such as Australia, Canada, the Scandinavian countries and also in some parts of the United States, the devolution of budgeting and management power to schools and the decentralisation of educational administration are being pursued with vigour....

A STRATEGIC BOOK THAT GIVES YOU A SURE SHOT COMPETITIVE EDGE § Competitive exams test the conceptual knowledge of students along with time management skills. However, several students generally do not get the expected rank/score despite knowing all the concepts. § It is an irony that students spend several precious hours and parents spend huge money running from one coaching institute to another, but nobody guides them on time management right from the beginning, and when students attend crash courses (about 1-2 months before competitive exam), they hardly have any time to master these skills. § The author of this book ...

The Choice We Face


By John N. Hale
  • Release Date : 10 August 2021

A comprehensive history of school choice in the US, from its birth in the 1950s as the most effective weapon to oppose integration to its lasting impact in reshaping the public education system today.

In The Choice We Face, scholar Jon Hale reveals what most fail to see: school choice is grounded in a complex history of race, exclusion, and inequality. Through evaluating historic and contemporary education policies, Hale demonstrates how reframing the way we see school choice represents an opportunity to evolve from complicity to action. The idea of school ...
