The Squad that investigated The Great Train Robbery. &quote;The Old Grey Fox&quote; or &quote;One Day Tommy&quote; (Detective Chief Superintendent Tommy Butler) selected six of the best officers on the elite Metropolitan Police Flying Squad to investigate the Crime of the Century, but whilst many books have been written by and about every criminal arrested for this crime, NONE have been written about the detectives who traced and tracked them. Tommy Butler delayed his retirement to complete the job, but died a few months after he retired at 57 years of age, the only detective of his rank in the late 1950s and 1960s not to publish an autobiography.**This book provides a detailed account of the men tasked with tracking down the most notorious thieves in British history. It examines the investigation in detail and asks how it would contrast with the methods used today should a similar incident take place.**Geoff Platt examines what happened to these men after the investigation was closed and the effect it had on both their personal and professional lives.
A community school differs from other public schools in important ways: it is generally open most of the time, governed by a partnership between the school system and a community agency, and offers a broad array of health and social services. It often has an extended day before and after school, features parent involvement programs, and works for community enrichment. How should such a school be structured? How can its success be measured? Community Schools in Action: Lessons from a Decade of Practice presents the Children's Aid Society's (CAS) approach to creating community schools for the 21st century. CAS began this work more than a decade ago and today operates thirteen such schools in three low-income areas of New York City. Through a technical assistance center operated by CAS, hundreds of other schools across the country and the world are adapting this model. Based on their own experiences working with community schools, the contributors to the volume supply invaluable information about the selected program components. They describe how and why CAS started its community school initiative and explain how CAS community schools are organized, integrated with the school system, sustained, and evaluated. The book also includes several contributions from experts outside of CAS: a city superintendent, an architect, and the director of the Coalition for Community Schools. Co-editors Joy Dryfoos, an authority on community schools, and Jane Quinn, CAS's Assistant Executive Director of Community Schools, have teamed up with freelance writer Carol Barkin to provide commentary linking the various components together. For those interested in transforming their schools into effective child- and family-centered institutions, this book provides a detailed road map. For those concerned with educational and social policy, the book offers a unique example of research-based action that has significant implications for our society.

`An excellent resource for principals-especially new principals. It will definitely help them establish their vision for technology in their schools. I read the book in one sitting' - Kim Leblanc, Region V Technology Resource Specialist, Calcasieu Parish Public Schools, Louisiana `An invaluable resource to practicing school leaders, students in school leader preparation programs, and professors of school leadership' - Neil J Shipman, Clinical Associate Professor, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill `Illustrates that technology leadership is not about bells and whistles, but about curriculum and instructional leadership' - John Artis, Assistant Superintendent, Upper Arlington City Schools, Ohio `Theodore Creighton does a wonderful job exploring the complexities of technology in schools' - Vicki Barnett, Course Instructor ITT Technical Institute, Florida The Principal as Technology Leader is a comprehensive examination of the ways in which administrators and school leaders can support and plan effective technology programmes for both students and teachers. Author Theodore Creighton provides a very detailed explanation and specific plan design to help school principals and other educational leaders become managers and facilitators of successful applications of technology in schools. He argues for the need of a conceptual knowledge of how technologies can restructure education, as opposed to the superficial focus on hardware and software programmes monopolizing schools today. The Principal as Technology Leader explores issues of planning for technology and staff development, administrative support for technology programs that will truly enhance education, and technology implementation that improves student achievement, as well as examines what ineffective programmes look like and why technology programmes fail. The final chapter presents an implementation model specifically targeted to assist minority students and others with special learning needs.
