This is a book by educators, for educators. It grapples with the complexities, the humanity and the possibilities in education. In a climate of competing accountabilities and measurement mechanisms; corporate solutions to education 'problems'; and narratives of 'failing' schools, 'underperforming' teachers and 'disengaged' students; this book asks 'What matters?' or 'What should matter?' in education. Based in the unique Australian context, this book situates Australian education policy, research and practice within the international education narrative. It argues that professionals within schools should be supported, empowered and welcomed into policy discourse, not dictated to by top-down bureaucracy. It advocates for a flipping, flattening and democratising of the education system, in Australia and around the world. Flip the System Australia: What matters in education brings together the voices of teachers, school leaders and scholars in order to offer diverse perspectives, important challenges and hopeful alternatives to the current education system.

Changing education from the ground up, this book foregrounds the diverse, provocative voices of school practitioners - those working at the whiteboard, in the playground, in the boardroom - that are often ignored in education reform, and yet are crucial voices to drive change.
