“We are knee-deep in the age of accountability and investigating ways to close the achievement gaps while still raising student achievement for all students. As teacher leaders and school administrators, we need to constantly explore and analyze procedures that will lead to continuous improvement in our learning environment. This book outlines some common pitfalls and gives practical advice as well as real life examples of how our colleagues have made dynamic changes.”

"Ron Nash references many excellent and highly regarded researchers and his own experience abolishing committees and instituting project teams. I was energized by this book; it was truly a reminder of what I believe as a person, educator, and professional. This book is not only great for aspiring principals or superintendents, but also for anyone who is involved in organizational development."
