Overview

How does one become an effective superintendent of schools? There is no simple formula as the turnover rate reflects the difficulty of the position.

Surviving and Thriving as a Superintendent of Schools is a must read for practicing and aspiring superintendents and people who wish to understand the complexities of the position and the strategies needed to succeed.
