About the Author:

Leslie S. Kaplan is a retired school administrator, a full-time education writer, and an Adjunct Research Professor at Old Dominion University, USA.

William A. Owings is Professor of Educational Leadership at Old Dominion University, USA.

Review:

"A great foundation book for principals and those working with them. Comprehensive, challenging, helpful, this book is both clear and compelling, and offers great ideas on all aspects of leadership in leading change with schools."

--Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus, University of Toronto

"Kaplan and Owings have crafted a powerful and much needed new volume on the principalship. They keep the spotlight exactly where it needs to be: on academic press and culture. This is an authentic and relevant work that focuses on seeing and understanding principal work at ground level."

--Joseph Murphy, Frank W. Mayborn Chair of Education and Associate Dean at Peabody College of Education, Vanderbilt University

"Kaplan and Owings have written a highly readable book that provides comprehensive coverage of pedagogy, the ISLLC standards, and current issues facing administrators. These engaging wordsmiths have written a book that is beneficial for both a graduate student beginning an educational administration program as well as a practicing school leader."

--Patricia Hoehner, Associate Professor of Educational Administration, University of Nebraska at Kearney

"This text has immediate and insightful impact at several levels for students of educational leadership studies: a novice benefits from the scope of presented theory as well as the depth of content and a veteran school leader has a useful ‘how-to’ guidebook suggesting several ways to enact sustainable positive school change. The journey is both thought-provoking and pragmatic."

--Michael V. Pregot, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Educational Leadership Studies, Long Island University
