Webster's points are: (1) the principal must teach teachers using an informed vision of the school as an ideal setting for learner growth, (2) teaching the universe of discourse and its skills are the most important activities in schools because discourse is the master switchboard of all teaching and learning, and (3) effective principalship is eclectic and pragmatic. The focus of the book includes educationally sound, legally defensible teacher evaluation that has been developed with other principals who have perfected the science of writing up teachers. Innovations in Webster's method involve approaches to staff development, different portrayals of the authoritative basis of the principalship, and the evaluation of teaching from the point of view of discourse among practiced and inexperienced teachers.

"The most powerful book I have ever seen on the principalship, especially as it relates to the principal taking charge of instruction as well as all other aspects of the school...I recommend it to my principals as well as all other principals at all levels, everywhere."-Kirk McCandless Superintendent Delhi Unified School District Delhi, CA
"I highly recommend it for advanced studies in education. The conceptual model showing the interpersonal-political domain connecting the management and learner-centered domains will help administrators in maintaining balance in their approaches to running their schools."- John Borba, Ed.D. Curriculum Director Stanislaus Union School District Modesto, CA
"Learner-Centered Principalship: The Principal as Teacher of Teachers filled a void that was lacking in other books on principalship and school administration in general. The void I refer to is a lack of detail related to procedures and actual documentation "language" necessary in making defensible cases in teacher dismissal proceedings."- Dr. Oscar Donahue Principal Hermann Intermediate School San Jose, CA
"The many theories and basic leadership concepts, combined with actual examples from the daily business of running schools, afforded a clarity that I have never seen before in a graduate-quality book in school administration...All can profit from refocusing on the point that principals should be, first and all, principal teachers."- Antonio L. Borba District Superintendent Chatom Union School District Turlock, CA
"Never, during my doctoral studies in school administration nor during my 23 years' service in...California school districts, did I encounter such a lucid, practical textbook for preparing and informing principals. Most of the current textbooks on principalship have little relationship to what is required to run urban schools. I hope it will be read by principals everywhere."- Alfred Gordon, Ed.D. Principal Oakland Unified School District Oakland, CA
