Best-selling author and education guru Thomas J. Sergiovanni debunks the popular notion that corporate leadership strategies can be applied to schools. He presents a leadership model based on the specific mission, goals, and rhythms of schools everywhere. This unique framework invites caring and thoughtful educators to build educational communities that are more democratic and responsive to human nature and student development. Filled with practical ideas and real-life examples from a variety of schools, Leadership for the Schoolhouse offers a compelling picture of schooling and leadership at their best.
