Principals are often called the second most crucial in-school influencers (after teachers) of student learning. But what should the principal do in order to maximize student achievement? One of the best-known leadership authors in education, Fullan explains why the answer lies neither in micro-managing instruction nor in autonomous entrepreneurialism. He shows systematically how the principal's role should change, demonstrating how it can be done in short order, at scale.

  • Explains how to choose the right versus wrong drivers of school success
  • Filled with "action items" to help implement Fullan's program effectively
  • Includes strategies that have been successfully field-tested in schools across the United States and Canada

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“This revealing and powerful book comes just in time, as we launch the biggest education reform in the past fifty years. It should be required reading not only for principals, but perhaps even more importantly for those who support and lead them.”
Laura Schwalm, CaEdPartners; former superintendent, Garden Grove, California

“After decades of studying, working with, and enhancing the lot of principals . . . Fullan’s conclusion? Principals are needed now more than ever, and he’s smack on target. He doesn’t mince words, yet instills hope and confidence. Simply great . . . this book should be on every leader’s desk. Another bull’s-eye!”
Willam Parrett, director, Center for School Improvement and Policy Studies, Boise State University, Idaho

“I just read The Principal and I am on fire and in love. I couldn't put it down! Fullan's uniquely succinct brilliance for soaring above the noise and clutter that bogs us down is incredibly energizing and inspiring.”
Alice Thomas, president and CEO, Center for Development and Learning, Metairie, Louisiana
