Editorial Reviews

Roland S. Barth
...offers educators the gift of concrete ideas for developing their improvement road map combined with an array of practical footings and levers for change.
Carl D. Glickman
...right on target. He thoughtfully and practically examines how small scale efforts can lead to major school improvement. What I am most impressed by is how he merges lessons learned from the study of actual schools with the literature on school and organizational change to provide concrete applications and practical steps for all school leaders, administrators, and teachers.
Nassp Bulletin
In this era of 'policy wonks,' it is refreshing to read an author who understands schools and the practical levels they apply to become effective.
Michael Fullan
Larson's second edition again provides a concrete and doable guide for making real school improvement. Since the first edition in 1992, much has additionally been written about change, but Larson's book continues to make a new contribution by examining and describing how small scale changes have the potential to bring about deep changes in most schools. The book is clear, contains day-to-day examples, brings the reader up-to-date on the relevant literature, and above all provides a grounded philosophy, embedded in sound organizational theory, for effecting change from the inside out.
Scott D. Thomson
If you are looking for a new perspective and practical ideas for positioning your school as we enter the next century, read the second edition of Changing Schools from the Inside Out. Bob Larson has again produced an impressive treatise on change that includes the lessons of past reforms, the potential of current efforts, and promising paths for innovation.
