What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“We all know how important leadership is to school improvement. What we haven’t been able to understand, until this book, is how leadership practice ‘stretched across multiple people’ can actually accomplish this improvement.”— SUSAN H. FUHRMAN, dean and George and Diane Weiss Professor of Education, University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, and chair, Management Committee, Consortium for Policy Research in Education

 

“Grounded in the work of real schools and their many leaders, this concise and cogent analysis gives practical meaning to Spillane’s oft-cited—yet rarely understood—theory of distributed leadership. It is an essential guide for all those intent on improving their schools.”— SUSAN MOORE JOHNSON, Porzheimer Professor of Teaching and Learning, Harvard Graduate School of Education

 

“The most important ‘street level’ look to date at a topic at the very center of effective leadership for twenty-first century schools—by the nation’s foremost expert on distributed leadership.”— JOSEPH MURPHY, professor of education and associate dean, Department of Leadership, Policy, and Organization, Vanderbilt University
