How High-Performing Principals Create High-Performing Schools
A complete guide to administrative and instructional leadership, Handbook of School Improvement poses two key questions for discussion: "What is a high-performing school?" and "What does a head teacher do to create a high-performing school?"
This illuminating text provides answers to those and other critical questions via findings from a ground-breaking study of exceptional head teachers who have created high-performing schools. Reflecting in-depth interviews with 20 head teachers of outstanding or significantly improved schools, the authors discuss individual and group activities that can be used by council and school administrators, staff developers, teachers, and parents working together for school improvement.
This resource also presents an array of top resources that include books, articles, Web sites, standards, videos, kits, tools, workbooks, career-planning materials, and interviews with experts.
