Summary

This publication synthesizes the most current research and the best leadership practices currently used in effective schools and businesses. Written from the perspectives of both a distinguished Dean of Education and one of America's most widely acclaimed practitioners, this publication provides specific, practical, ''how-to'' information on continuously improving school performance with chapters on:

  • The disappointment of school reform
  • A new model: the professional learning community
  • The complexity of the change process
  • Mission and vision, values and goals
  • Sustaining the school improvement process
  • Embedding change in the culture of a school
  • Planning for learning through curriculur focus
  • The principal's role
  • The teacher's role
  • The parents' role
  • Staff development

These research-based recommendations, drawn from the best practices found today in schools nationwide, have been rigorously reviewed for consistency with standards of quality adopted or endorsed by various national organizations: the National Council of the Accreditation of Teacher Education; the NAEP; the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards; and the NASSP.
