Skillfully combining the results of relevant, available research with the substantial professional experience of its authors, this book provides readers not only with practical advice on how to turn around failing schools but also with a deep understanding of the root causes of such failure. Leadership, it is argued, is the core issue in turning around failing schools, and the book offers an extended and detailed account of the leadership required for school turnaround. The book is a rich source of guidance for aspiring and incumbent school leaders and a valuable resource for leadership developers and trainers. -- Kenneth Leithwood, professor emeritus, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto
A powerful statement about possibilities for children too often left behind. An important guide for practitioners who must labor to make that hope palpable in schools. -- Joseph Murphy, Frank W. Mayborn chair & associate dean for special projects, Vanderbilt University's Peabody College
This book gives us courage that with energy, intelligence, and renewed faith in the mission of public education we can begin to turn around those schools which are not reaching their full public potential, even as the leaders in them can't control all of the variables which will ultimately account for their success or failure. If nothing else, the book gives us renewed purpose for believing that leaders make a difference, and upon that everything else is anchored. -- Fenwick W. English, R. Wendell Eaves Sr. Distinguished Professor of Educational Leadership, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
