What Is School Culture and Why Should I Care?: Engage the Entire School in the Culture-Building Process

Details

In this session, Anthony will make a clear distinction between school culture and school climate, and why it should be important to everyone. We will explore the research history of this topic and why it has been widely ignored, and what each and every member of a school community has to contribute in order to build a healthy and productive culture. No one will leave this session without a clear understanding of how culture drives every action and decision made in schools. 

Objectives and Outcomes 

  • Understand the importance of school culture from an empirical perspective.
  • Clearly recognise the difference between a "healthy' and "toxic" culture.
  • Leave with strategies and insights that start to engage the entire school community in the culture building process.
