"Today's school leaders must be both excellent communicators and skilled diplomats. It's no longer sufficient to plot a course to meet the needs of students. Leading a school system through change requires the mastery of persuasive communications and interpersonal relations that will earn the leader the respect of constituents and faith in his or her decisions. This book offers sound guidance on new and established ways to connect with the community to advance high-quality education for all students." -- Daniel A. Domenech, Executive Director
