Amid calls for educational reform, little attention has been given to the crucial relationships among adults within the school. Noted educator Roland S. Barth argues that those closest to students-teachers, principals, and parents-are the most powerful sources for school change. Drawing on his years of experience as a teacher, principal, and university faculty member, Barth shows how communication, collegiality, and risk taking among adults in the schoolhouse can create an atmosphere of learning and leadership for all.
