Changing the role of schools

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

When school buildings go up, they are a sign of progress, a promise for the future. Among all the other icons of modern times-roads, real estate developments, factories, or prisons-new schools engender less ambivalence and attract less protest. Education is something that modernising people almost unequivocally want.
