Overview

Who Will Save Our Schools? offers a compelling new look at the future of schooling and the role that teachers as leaders must assume in that future. Numerous reforms encompassing a wide range of philosophies and theories have been attempted, and all have proven that teachers must take the reins if these efforts are to be successful.

This book connects a unique combination of ideas for the first time: teaching as leading, constructivist leadership, an ecological perspective of systemic change, learning communities, and the professional development of teachers. The authors, who offer more than a century of combined experience as teachers, administrators, professors, and consultants, have synthesized these ideas into a new conception of teaching, learning, and leading, and set forth a new standard for school reform.
