Ready or not: leadership choices in early care and education
After more than a century of evolution, early childhood care and education in the United States is in transition. In this frank discussion of the field's purpose, identity, and responsibility, the authors examine the major issues that must be addressed if children are to be given more and better opportunities. They show how adaptive leadership work can unify the field, create openness to new change strategies, generate a shared vision, and build a viable strategy for its achievement.
