Summary

Even the best-intentioned school reform efforts can be stalled by the resistance of educators who feel burdened and conflicted when trying to implement the change process.

The Human Side of School Change presents realistic advice on problem solving, communication, and staff motivation, offering a range of leadership strategies for building trust, confidence, capacity, and inspiration in schools.
