I wish I had had access to these insights during my own turbulent years as a school principal.

--From the Foreword by Roland S. Barth, Founding Director, The Principals Center, Harvard Graduate School of Education

In the 12 years since the publication of the first edition of this bestseller, policymakers and school reformers have increasingly pointed to the school principal as the most important agent for needed change in our schools. With this recognition, principals are now expected to do even more in their already overloaded schedules. In this much-awaited, fully revised new edition, the author offers valuable advice and practical guidelines that draw on new research and focus on what's still worth fighting for in our schools:

* Deep and creative learning for all students not just minimum competency in tested achievement

* Professional learning communities that respect and engage teachers in the quest to improve learning

* Sustainable leadership that creates lasting improvement rather than quick fixes that fade all too fast after early promise
