Obstetrics for Schools: Eliminating failure and ensuring the safe delivery of all learners
By Rachel Macfarlane
In most parts of the world, the death of a baby in childbirth is now a rare tragedy rather than a common occurrence - and it would be considered shocking for medical staff to accept a significant infant fatality rate. It's also inconceivable that a hospital would have a successful delivery target much below 100%. How could anything else be acceptable in this day and age?
Yet there is an expectation, and acceptance, of 'baked in' educational failure for around a third of 16-year-olds in UK schools each year. Such outcomes need addressing, and this book is about righting these wrongs.
Obstetrics for Schools takes a look at inequity within the UK's education system and examines a number of factors that contribute to this current state. Each chapter focuses on a key potential barrier to success and offers school leaders and practitioners a range of strategies to help them address the 'fatality rate' and ensure that all pupils leave school prepared for the challenges ahead.
Rachel Macfarlane draws on her experience as a head teacher and system leader to share a multitude of practical strategies for overcoming these barriers, using case studies and examples from successful schools across the country.
