From Outrageous to Inspired shows how all the people associated with any school-teachers, principal, parents, children, neighbors, and other community members-can take up leadership together to create a vibrant learning community. David Hagstrom promotes new ways of thinking about parental participation, neighborhood involvement, and teacher leadership in schools. In From Outrageous to Inspired he offers a guidebook for school leaders who are engaged in a journey of school improvement and community building. The book is filled with stories and reflections from Hagstrom's transformative experience as the principal of Denali Elementary School in Fairbanks, Alaska. As principal of the school he asked the question "What do you want for your children, here at Denali?" These extraordinary stories offer a framework for creatively bringing about change from within an organization and for dealing with the larger issues of school change and reform.
