DESCRIZIONE DEI CONTENUTI:

This book compiles reseaches carried out between December 2007 – December 2009 within the project „The School as it Is – Portrait of the Student, the Teacher and their Interactions”.

The development of the project, together with the publication of the present volume in a moment when Romania is in a crucial stage are not at random.

COMMENTO SULLA PUBBLICAZIONE:

At the first sight, the book can be presented, of course, as a report, as a synthesis of what all the people involved in the project development have created and carried out by working together.

Nevertheless we invite the readers to appoach it as an „educational book” in which many of things we know (or we think we know) about the school and those who define its culture and ethos are validated (or not).

We invite the reader to study carefully the outlined portraits, the dynamics of the interactions, the common places and major differences in the way of thinking, expectancies and requirements of those who define the school universe. Being or not a specialist in education, every reader shall find throughout this work at least one aspect which is worth reflecting on, at least one idea which can support the future actions and undertakings for the modernization of the educational institutions.
