Call for papers special issue: Towards a sustainable school culture

Today's society has undergone and is undergoing profound and structural changes that affect all areas and dimensions of society. Education centres, as an institution, do not seem to have changed as much. In Spain, there are many teachers in public and also private and subsidised schools who, discreetly or anonymously and in silence, have promoted and carry out projects and practices which, although isolated, correspond to "another education". On the other hand, for some time now we have had examples of schools that have been concerned and are concerned with substantially modifying the foundations, adding themselves to the group of centres considered to be centres of pedagogical renewal. From this perspective, this monograph aims to present knowledge and experiences related to practices carried out in schools at different educational levels, linked to pedagogical innovation and renewal. Therefore, it is intended that this monograph represents both an analysis of the educational system and the improvement of the organisation and educational practices that are being carried out in different educational centres with the aim of adapting to today's society.
