A great job covering a lot of material...I wish I had this book earlier in my career. Love the last chapter! -- Antonia Fox, middle school principal, Virginia
Building level principals need support in their work of creating learning institutions. They need strategies - proven strategies - to help them plan for, lead, and develop ongoing leadership in educators that create the high levels of learning essential for their school. Dr. Jones' book provides the building level principal with the insight, theory, tools, and concrete practices to handle the work and keep the focus on learning. Filled with practical tips, written in a conversational voice, focusing on leading the learning, this book should be on every principals desk! -- Abe Jeffers, high school principal, Virginia
School principals learn many lessons in a day, a week, a year. One of their biggest challenges is to remember these lessons, use them in the work, and share them with others. Likely a common theme for retiring principals is 'I could write a book' that would help current and future principals navigate the world of schools and learning. Dr. Jones has done just that - he takes 40+ years of experience in education, including all that he has learned from some of the world's leading voices in education, and hands it to principals in one resource. His takes his experience as an educator of children, an educator of teachers, an educator of school leaders, and so many others and incorporates it into a resource that is truly invaluable for today's school leaders. Every principal, assistant principal, and aspiring leader will be transformed by reading and implementing these practices. Read on. -- Janice Case, consultant, former secondary principal, California
