Standards-Based Performance

The Superintendent as CEO: Standards-Based Performance
 

About the eBook

"John Hoyle and his co-authors have done the impossible-they have produced a textbook on the superintendency that is both research based and readable. They have also bridged the gap between the world of those who believe everything is measurable and those who see leadership as spiritual and learning as a work in progress. This is a major addition to the field of educating school system leaders."
