Editorial Reviews

Joseph Murphy
A deeply personal voyage into the topic of servant leadership, with a laser focus on the authentic aspects of the principalship and the communal dimensions of schooling.
Debbie Daniels
Leading from the heart is something that Rocky Wallace has experienced firsthand. Unchained is a reflection of the author and his servant leadership. Only those who have walked in Principal Williamson’s shoes could write such an insightful story. This book puts leadership in perspective and focuses on what really matters: service, relationships and the vision of what can be.
Wayne Willis
In an age of high-stakes assessment, even the best-intentioned school leaders can get so caught up in narrow measurement goals that they forget the larger goals of American schooling-to prepare young people to be good citizens, to be economically self-sufficient, and ultimately to become self-actualized human beings. Rocky Wallace knows these problems firsthand from his work as a school principal, consultant, and regional school leader. In this work, Wallace invites practitioners to reflect upon both the immediate day-to-day realities of their work and the greater vision that inspires us to become educators in the first place. His thinking brings the bureaucratic routines of daily school life together with the existential insights of the likes of Parker Palmer. His is a critical message for school leaders everywhere, delivered in an exceptionally accessible package.
Mike Rutherford
Rocky Wallace makes a valuable contribution to the study of leadership in his Principal to Principal series. And, he goes beyond that. His narrative teaching style gently but surely connects theory to practice in a way that celebrates the context of principals’ work. Read it for the compelling storyline and learn leadership along the way!
Norma Meek
Education operates in an ever-changing world. Breaking Away from the Corporate Model is a must-read for everyone in our profession. Wallace is a gifted writer and educator who masterfully guides us down new paths of thinking and into the twenty-first century. His ideas flow with intelligence and good common sense.
