The well researched contents of this book are absolutely on target. It provides a practitioner's map for effectively creating high performing schools. -- Donald R. Thompson Ph.D, past president, American Association of School Administrators (AASA)
This book offers an extensive look at comprehensive school reform and emphasizes how an organizational approach to school reform creates a distinctly different school culture and climate that addresses the needs of school administrators, teachers, and students. This topic is crucial when creating a clear vision based on appropriate strategies and diagnostic tools. It will reach beyond current educational processes and provide insight and a novel approach to culture and climate as we work together to address comprehensive school reform. -- Dr. Diane Boothe, dean, college of education, University of Idaho
Dr. Bulach and his colleagues have tackled the big picture in education, school climate, that subtle source of the learning that shapes our whole society. But they do not stop there, they go on to demonstrate how positive school climate enhances academic achievement. Their book provides excellent guidance and practical suggestions for professional educators who want to change school dynamics and achievement. -- W.A. (Bill) Belanger Ph.D, president, BB Consultants for Change Ontario, Canada, and professor (retired), University of Ottawa
Much has been written about school reform recently but most fall short when one is looking for a complete package. I find this work to be very complete and would recommend it to any one looking for an up to date text book. Comprehensive school reform requires a positive climate, culture, clear mission, vision and personal learning environment. This manuscript contains all the ingredients necessary to build and maintain a high performing school that is demanded in today's schools. -- Winston D. Pickett Ed.D, retired executive director of the Tennessee Association of Middle Schools
