Improving Schools from Within: Teachers, Parents, and Principals Can Make the Difference

Amid calls for educational reform, little attention has been given to the crucial relationships among adults within the school. Noted educator Roland 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.

But don’t worry. The book provides plenty of help. Ever the teachers, the Wongs begin their book by teaching you how to use it.
