The ICSEI Monograph Series

The ICSEI Monograph series is an important contribution to the dissemination of knowledge about school effectiveness and school improvement (SESI). It provides an opportunity for leading researchers, policy makers and practitioners around the world to share their ideas, their empirical work and to push the boundaries of the SESI knowledge base.  This Series underlines a commitment to high quality debate, discussion and dialogue based upon evidence. The series is intended to bring new thinking, new challenges and new research to the SESI field.
