When trying to solve the problems of education, critics most often look at curriculum content and teaching techniques, rather than at the environments in which students learn. Yet these learning environments have an important impact on student achievement.

This book reviews the existing literature and knowledge about school environments as it relates to educational effectiveness and student achievement. The authors then integrate the material into a simple, yet inclusive, conceptual framework that is useful for policymakers, practitioners and researchers.
