Pathways to Belonging

Contemporary Perspectives of School Belonging

School belonging should be a priority across every facet of education. The research on school belonging for positive student outcomes has been widely accepted and findings demonstrating its role as a protective factor against mental ill health and youth suicide are too compelling to ignore. In an age where it has been argued that academic achievement is prioritised over wellbeing, the editors bring the importance of school belonging back to the fore in educational policy and planning. This book is the most comprehensive compendium of its kind on the topic of school belonging. An engaging foreword by Professor John Hattie of The University of Melbourne sets the scene for an engaging and somewhat challenging look at how school belonging is quintessential in contemporary schooling.
