Abstract: In this edition we have an interesting collection of thematic papers, other papers and a short research report and a book reviews section. We have three thematic papers on the theme School design, climate and safety: strategies for anti-bullying interventions and inclusiveness guest edited by our colleagues, Professor Muthanna Samara and Professor Peter Smith. The three papers are discussed in detail below by Professor Samara and Professor Smith; we would like to thank them both for their work and effort in this regard. In the first of the other papers, Kumschick, Thiel, Goschin and Froehlich (Germany) discuss the relationship between mood and decision making in the teaching process in initial teacher education. They report that after the completion of their internship, preservice teachers reported a significant increase in the three dimensions of their teaching performance, namely planning, teaching and reflecting. They also found that negative mood predicts the processes of planning and reflecting following the internship, but had no effect on the actual teaching of the lesson. They conclude that initial teacher education programmes need to particularly address negative mood as it significantly impacts teaching competences during teaching practice and consequently the quality of teaching in schools.
