|The book is divided into five sections. The first begins with a review of factors that create a need for clusters in Namibia. This is followed by a section describing the range of benefits that clusters can provide, while a third section outlines those ingredients that make clusters work most effectively. A review of the functioning of clusters in relation to education policies is then provided, while the last section explores several aspects of how clusters can develop in the future.||Perhaps the most important observation made in this book is that by interconnecting schools in clusters, the great majority of Namibian schools get more rapid access to new developments. Good ideas are quickly spread throughout the network, and stakeholders feel intellectually and professionally supported. This facilitates ongoing improvements in all areas of schooling such that the schools can keep up with the changing needs of the communities they serve. There is and always will be a need for a 'better education' and clustering facilitates and supports such sustained improvement.|
