The authors take the reader on a journey through several different situations that occur at the elementary, middle and high school levels and focus on a different and challenging aspect of educational leadership every time. The reader can read and analyze different scenarios and decide whether or not the outcome was the best for all stakeholders involved. Not only do all of the vignettes offer beneficial advice to educational leaders of all levels and experience, but they also provide research that demonstrates how and why each educational leader does what he or she does in each situation and how those choices affect everyone involved.

I have been interested lately in the imperatives of pro-social acculturation by schools and was, thus, delighted to receive the pre-publication draft of Healthy Schools: The Hidden Component of Teaching and Learning. How wonderful to find such a timely piece filled with case studies and anecdotes that will resonate with school leaders and teachers in the public, private, and independent school worlds as they search for the blocks to build that school culture that is the foundation for any learning that occurs. -- Patrick F. Bassett, President, National Association of Independent Schools
Great principals are like magnets - they attract and keep great teachers. Phyllis Gimbel and Lenesa Leana applied years of real-world school experience in writing this highly readable book describing what it takes for school principals to establish and lead a healthy school, and become an even more powerful magnet. -- William J. Bushaw, executive director, PDK International, a sponsor of the federally recognized Future Educators Association
Healthy Schools: The Hidden Component of Teaching and Learning is a reader friendly resource for educators at every level of the education continuum. The content is driven by experience and practice rather than theory. The topical arrangement of the book leads readers through consideration of critical elements in understanding and improving school culture. -- Richard A. Flanary, former deputy executive director of programs & services, National Association of Secondary School Principals, president, Flanary Educational Consulting
