This is a book about hope. It affirms the power of personal and collective responsibility to enact heroic changes in our schools. Through a shared vision, purpose, and
inquiry--and using the collective wisdom of myth, legend, and metaphor from around theworld--we can find the inspiration and courage to face the challenges inherent in transforming schools into authentic learning organizations.
