Wonderful resource, David. I'm going to look into what else the UN Education site has to offer... really amazing what is out there!
Here are two books that I highly recommend. Greg Mortison's "Three Cups of Tea" and how he is transforming education in Afghanistan, one cup of tea at a time.

Also, John Taylor Gatto. He's an influencial writer and watch some of his interviews / videos to get an idea of the man. Former teacher of the year, he is now "on the outside looking in" and sees school as the real problem and an outdated industrial phenomena. Always interesting reading and thoughts.

Attachments:
I had the same feeling reading Taylor Gatto as when I read CS Lewis' screwtape letters.
There's this picture of Pink Floyd's Wall in the back of my mind while I'm reading it.
Still, I am a teacher...
These two books are quite well known standards. The Art of Teaching and 2 classics about CLT.
