Successful School Leadership in Action
Achieving excellence begins with hard work at the ground level. There is no question that the stakes have been raised and that school leaders have more pressure—and more opportunity—to make a bigger difference than ever before. School leaders and principals must answer the call to drive the change our children deserve.
Award-winning author and educational reform expert Michael Fullan takes the subject of moral leadership to the next level by showing how to put change into practice at the local and systemic levels.
He explains how the combined forces of shared leadership make the difference, and outlines proven ways to:
- Create a culture of moral leadership
- Drive change with school leaders
- Achieve system-wide progress
- Avoid educational blind alleys
“Michael Fullan makes it clear that the most pious mission statement held with passionate conviction will not improve schools unless educators take strategic actions to bring that mission to life. More importantly, he offers specific examples of system-wide improvement with such precise strategies for implementation that inaction is no longer an option for educators who contend they are committed to high levels of learning for all students.
