Book Description

"A powerful template for crafting responsible and humane schools." --Educational Leadership "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 Best-selling author and education guru Thomas J.

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.
