Restoring the pride, focus and community perception of our educators is now a national imperative that involves cultivating a positive account of teaching expertise in every Australian school.

It’s about doing teaching as we’ve never done it before.
Restorative teaching that restores our teachers is a noble, worthy and overdue cause. The time is now, and the place is your school.
In this book, you will find the case for change and some inconvenient truths about our avoidance of meaningful transformation within our schools. You’ll also find a roadmap to a teaching future that narrows the gap between your purpose and your practice.
