School leaders won't be able to sustain the reforms public education so badly needs unless teachers, parents, and students are on board as well. It just won't happen. You Can't Do It Alone offers fresh and remarkably level-headed advice on reaching out to these key stakeholders. -- Ruth Wooden, former president of The Ad Council
Jean Johnson has written a wise and important book (as well as a mercifully short one). . . . One of her most useful contributions is to draw upon the toolkit that the Public Agenda has developed over its 35-year history to bring creative listening, dialogue and engagement into reasonably simple everyday practice in the interest of successful school reform. -- Daniel Yankelovich, President, Public Agenda
Jean Johnson has given us all a gift. In this gem of a book, You Can't Do It Alone, she helps us to see how we can come together to create the kinds of schools and communities we all yearn for. If ever there was a an issue Americans want to engage on, it's education. Now is the time, and this book provides the way. -- Richard C. Harwood, President, Harwood Institute for Public Innovation
This book is pleasantly surprising filled with practical information, strategies, and advice culled mostly from 20 years of survey and focus group data collected by the Public Agenda, a non-profit research and engagement organization.... This book is a communication manual for school leaders committed to reform, and lives up to its billing. You Can't Do It Alone is recommended to practicing administrators and to faculty teaching in school leadership preparation programs. * Teachers College Record *
