Our 'Turnaround Challenge' report suggests that changed conditions and new capacity linked to clusters of schools are essential components for turnaround at scale. The vivid, ground-level profiles in Fairchild and DeMary's book make it clear that 'new capacity' requires specialized experience and school leaders who devote their careers to turnarounds. -- William H. Guenther, president and founder, Mass Insight Education
I've devoted my career to education and turning around nonprofit organizations, so I know that tackling the challenges of underperforming schools requires an extraordinary and sustained investment in identifying and developing the best principals and teachers. The Turnaround Mindset is a must-read for educators, community and business leaders, and any stakeholder committed to changing the impediments to student success. With academic insights and practitioner perspectives, Fairchild and DeMary demonstrate the urgency for turnaround leadership. -- Janet M. Knupp, founding president and CEO of The Chicago Public Education Fund
A valuable resource, The Turnaround Mindset is not just for educators and academics focusing on chronically underperforming schools. This thought-provoking book will help you to understand that turnaround is a specialized skill set for school leaders in many settings and contexts. -- Renee Akbar Ph.D, associate professor, Division of Education, Xavier University of Louisiana
Through case studies of successful turnarounds, educators learn to focus resources on the environment, the executive and the execution. Also included is a discussion of how these plans affect educational policy in both the K12 and higher education arenas. * District Administration *
