School Leadership That Works
From Research to Results
Based on their analysis of 69 studies conducted since 1970 that met their selection criteria and a recent survey of more than 650 building principals, the authors have developed a list of 21 leadership responsibilities that have a significant effect on student achievement. Readers will learn
• the specific behaviors associated with the 21 leadership responsibilities;
• the difference between first-order change and second-order change and the leadership responsibilities that are most important for each;
• how to work smart by choosing the right work to focus on to improve student achievement;
• the advantages and disadvantages of comprehensive school reform models for improving student achievement;
• how to develop a site-specific approach to improving student achievement, using a framework of 11 factors and 39 action steps; and
• a five-step plan for effective school leadership.
Combining rigorous research with practical advice, School Leadership That Works gives school administrators the guidance they need to provide strong leadership for better schools.
