Product Description

Best-selling author and education guru Thomas J. Sergiovanni debunks the popular notion that corporate leadership strategies can be applied to schools. He presents a leadership model based on the specific mission, goals, and rhythms of schools everywhere. This unique framework invites caring and thoughtful educators to build educational communities that are more democratic and responsive to human nature and student development. Filled with practical ideas and real-life examples from a variety of schools, "Leadership for the Schoolhouse" offers a compelling picture of schooling and leadership at their best.

Editorial Reviews

"Sergiovanni gives educators a powerful template for crafting responsible and humane schools." (Educational Leadership)
"Sergiovanni believes education must develop its own theories and practices based on what schools are trying to do and the kinds of people schools serve. . . . RecommAnded for all levels of readers." (Choice)
"The first book I've seen in years that provides an authentic organization for our schools--one reflecting their core purposes, functions, and rhythms. Reading this book will make educators feel they have come home to familiar land and can still build anew from there." (Michael Huberman, professor, Graduate School of Education, Harvard University)
"Sergiovanni's alternative vision of schools as caring, intimate places built on mutual respect, civic responsibility, and shared purposes gets to the heart of excellence in education." (Ernest L. Boyer, president, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching)
