€ 34.95

Leading School Turnaround

Leading School Turnaround offers new perspectives and concrete, evidence based guidelines for the educational leaders and administrators faced with the challenge of turning our low performing schools around. Using the tools outlined in this groundbreaking book, school leaders can guide their schools to higher levels of achievement and sustained academic success.

Based on research conducted in the United States, Canada, and England, Leading School Turnaround addresses in three parts the dynamic context of the turnaround environment, what turnaround leaders do, and the incredible challenges of moving from turnaround to "stay around."

Filled with illustrative examples, the book outlines the best practices and behaviors successful turnaround leaders exercise. The authors include detailed information for applying the four main categories of turnaround leadership: direction setting, developing people, redesigning the school, and managing the instructional program.

This important resource can help any school leader get their school back on the track to academic success.
