Santoyo hit a home run with this very practical approach. As the world of education continues to change, Principals can latch on to the strategies in this book and begin to create real change. Student achievement will be a natural flow if these levers are put in place. A much needed tool for administrators!

There may be dozens of ways to run a good school, but perhaps only one way to run a truly excellent school--and this book has it. If I'd have gotten my hands on it years earlier, I would have created a better school environment and wasted far less energy doing it. Bambrick-Santoyo speaks directly to the school leader perspective, eschewing rumination in favor of action, concretely resolving dilemmas with clear tasks and systems that have proven results. Just when you're wondering how something looks, PB-S tells you; just when you wish you had a copy of a given rubric, you learn it's contained on the accompanying DVD. We're even taught how to redo our weekly schedules to accommodate these new practices. New to training leaders myself, I've found one of my major challenges to be the trimming of fat from the hazy, often unsupported, theories of school and teacher development, in order to dig out the concrete procedures that produce results quickly and at minimal expense to the overwhelming energies required of the leader each day. Leverage Leadership has done this work already. It will now be our primary guide for training in our network.
