Editorial Reviews

Theodore Creighton

"Certification, assessment, and standards for school principals are here to stay. Elaine Wilmore takes a fresh and innovative look at how standards for school administration are tied to the very core of educational leadership. A must read for all aspiring and practicing school leaders. Bravo!"

John H. Stevens

"This book informs school leaders how they can carry out critical leadership responsibilities that will lead to ever higher levels of academic achievement for all students."

Scott L. Greenwell

"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."
