Surviving Internal School Politics: Strategies for Dealing with the Internal Dynamicsby Beverley H. Johns, Sarup R. Mathur, Mary Z. McGrath
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
This book provides readers with the basic coping strategies of surviving within the political arena of their schools. If educators want to survive, they should read this book and find practical strategies from those who have collectively worked within the school setting for over 75 years—voices of experience to share helpful coping skills. When educators are bogged down with gossip, ostracism, and upsetting events, they will not be able to work effectively with their students and coworkers. These dynamics are illustrated throughout the book through the use of fictitious educators who portray staff dealing with situations to which readers can relate. In each chapter, readers will find an action plan designed to provide tools that educators should utilize in surviving internal politics.
