In education we are working on behalf of a truly noble cause: the lives of our students. We need a system for working together that is worthy of the work and one that harnesses the idealistic visions and inherent energies that brought us to education in the first place.
Becoming A Great School prepares you to create that system. The authors challenge top-down leadership as a vestige of the past which fails to fully engage today's teaching professionals. They explain why the following structures are essential to school revitalization: an intrinsically-motivated, energized workforce functioning smoothly together as a team; a clear focus which inspires cohesion and a sense of purpose; and a process which gradually renews the school's educational systems piece-by-piece. The outcome is what American education needs: stronger, revitalized, more effective, extraordinary schools - and it is all accomplished from within.
Ken, Nels and Joe reveal the quality management principles and collaborative leadership skills that led to amazing results for them, while detailing the practices necessary for educators to achieve the same outcomes in their schools.

Become the leader you imagined yourself to be while creating the school you always wanted to work in.
