“It is very informative, well-developed and insightful–the topics included go beyond the basics to what is really essential for success as an administrator.”  --Jennifer Naddeo, Professor, Loyola University Chicago, Department of Education, Chicago, IL

 

“It is written in a manner that the school leader in training, as well as seasoned school leaders, can read to gain a good solid understanding of special education law, implementation, strategies and solutions.  I could see this book becoming one of the textbooks an individual keeps and adds to their professional library to serve as a reference.”  --Ruth K. Klein, Ed. D, Adjunct Professor, LeMoyne College, Department of Education, Syracuse, New York
