Editorial Reviews

Adele Bovard
The case studies presented in this book have a uniquely relevant connection to the current daily work of a school administrator. Effective school leadership requires the ability to thoroughly consider various aspects of presenting issues. William Hayes pairs each well-articulated case study with a cogent set of questions challenging the reader to think through a process necessary to frame a solution.
Dr. James Frenck
Bill Hayes doesn't hold anything back. He places the student right in the middle of predicaments that are so authentic they could have happened in almost any school or district across the country today. Hayes is a superb storyteller. He brings life to each case with depth and detail that leaves little to the imagination. His narrative voice is the voice that could be heard in the administrator's office as the case is being painfully described. Hayes has identified and woven together in each case all of the critical elements that together produce the dilemmas that administrators face in real life. No answers or prescriptions are given, but students are given the opportunity to 'live' the cases in a protective classroom where responses to the dilemmas can be prepared in measured and less emotional environments than those Hayes describes.
School Administrator, May 2009 - Paul A. Shaw
The book is best suited for aspiring administrators and college professors, though principals and superintendents will enjoy reading some of the case studies presented.
Jim Thompson
In All New Real-Life Case Studies for School Administrators, Bill Hayes…engages the reader with compelling case study after compelling case study dealing with real issues faced by 21st century school administrators! Bill's idea to use case studies is engaging and certainly actively engages you in reflecting and learning!
