Editorial Reviews

Debra Jackson
Today, the media challenge school leaders on a global stage—in film, print, and using social networks—to improve their practices. Hence, we need to leverage our knowledge on educational leadership now more than ever. This book provides critical models to help future leaders actualize the changes they seek. As a superintendent, I often see potential school leaders struggling to understand where and how to make a difference. The authors in this book will inspire us all to share and rethink our education strategies and practices. Both emerging and experienced leaders can capitalize on these writers’ perspectives, as educators prepare to confront the rising challenges that face today’s schools.
Terrence E. Deal
In today's schools problems abound; leadership is in short supply. The shortfall is caused, in part, by our 'tiptoeing' around the core issues: How do we seek out, educate, and motivate people to become effective educational leaders? This book brings together people who know what they are talking about to address pressing questions that need attention. The collection is akin to having a panel of experts at the ready for immediate consultation or support.
