"In the process of developing a guide for school leaders using the ELCC standards, it was a great relief to come across your wonderful book, which we have relied on rather extensively. Thank you for your tremendous contribution to the literature on school leadership and for helping practitioners like me to interpret and apply the ELCC standards. "
