The role of the school principal has never been an easy one, and it is continually becoming more diverse and complex as the needs and demands of todays society change. This book is designed to help principals (and teacher leaders) fight for fundamentally positive changes that will benefit themselves and their students. Because principals are very often overloaded either with what they are actually doing or with all the things they think they should be doing, their actions, however unintentionally, are frequently shaped by outside events and/or the actions or directions of others. In the heart of this book, Guidelines for Action, the author helps principals break the cycle of dependency both for themselves and for those with whom they work.
