Editorial Reviews

"Sergiovanni documents cases of schools that have successfully reinvented themselves in order to establish a sense of 'community' as the foundation for all curriculum and instruction decisions. . . . Teachers, administrators, teacher educators, and communities seeking advice and motivation for restructuring schools for the 21st century would be well advised to consult this work." --Choice
"Provides the practitioner with both a theoretical blueprint with which to build learning communities and a rich supply of benchmark illustrations to use as prototypes. . . . Thought-provoking and challenging." --NASSP Bulletin
"Sergiovanni is the leading writer in pushing us deeper and deeper toward understanding and creating a 'community of learners.'" --Michael Fullan, dean of education, University of Toronto
"Sergiovanni does not just extol the virtues of educational communities. Through rich and vivid portraits, he conveys what they are like and how we might create them." --Howard Gardner, professor of education and co-director of Project Zero, Harvard University
