Product Description

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.
