Description:

`Leadership Lessons From Comprehensive School Reform addresses a topic that has received far too little attention in the comprehensive school reform movement: the role of school and district leaders in the reform process. This volume shows how much we've learned about how leaders shape comprehensive reform and how the reform process must shape leadership' - Robert Slavin, Co-Director, Center for Research on the Education of Students Placed at Risk, Johns Hopkins UniversityThis book explores three clusters and ten actual models used in comprehensive school reform. The book shows how leadership is affected by and transformed by the major reform initiatives being implemented in America's schools. While research-based, the editors and contributors have committed to writing to a broad audience of practitioners. The editors provide readers with lessons in leadership that can be drawn from the programs explored in each chapter by leaders in their field.
