Key Voices #40 – Getting a better understanding of what influences school culture with Dr Sam Baars

The Key
This week we talk to Dr Sam Baars, Director of Research at The Centre for Education and Youth about their report Inside the black box: How high-performing schools create a positive culture.”

We discuss how during the study of several schools researchers got ‘under the hood’ of school culture, and uncovered some big trends around the impact of consistency, use of data, governance and parental engagement on shaping a positive culture. Sam also offers some suggestions on how school leaders can evaluate their own school culture.
