21st century vision

At the heart of Building Schools for the Future is a desire not only to rebuild and renew individual secondary schools, but also to reform and redesign the pattern of education, to best serve each community for decades to come. It is an opportunity to think differently about all aspects of the process of developing and delivering new schools, exploring such questions as:
What do we want education to be in the 21st century?
How can we learn from the best current schools?
What is the right pattern of local provision (for example, the location and size of schools, or the relationship between primary, secondary and post-16 provision)?
How can we best translate the vision into specific schemes and projects?
What kind of leadership is needed to achieve this?
How can we best involve schools and communities along the way?
How can we create the most productive partnerships with the private sector.
