Review:

"In this highly readable book, Allan Odden vividly illustrates many of the most important practices for creating strong professional communities that can leverage high-quality instruction for the students who need it most. From the organization of time to the recruitment of teachers and leaders to the development of productive curriculum and teaching, school leaders will learn how to create a framework for school reform grounded in research and the wisdom of practice."--Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University (05/26/2009)

"Odden offers a sound program of 10 steps school leaders can implement to significantly improve student academic achievement in their districts. The author's focus on research-based strategies and effective use of educational resources resonates with district leaders, as do the real-world case studies of schools that have succeeded using this model."--Daniel A. Domenech, Executive Director (06/09/2009)

"As a career educator, I am always looking for ways to improve instruction and increase student learning. This manuscript is thought provoking and provides a variety of specific ways to reach the goal of real, sustainable school improvement."--Judy Brunner, Author, Educational Consultant (05/26/2009)

"Allan Odden has once again created a succinct and compelling framework to dramatically improve the performance of our nation s students, district by district. Odden not only thinks big, he provides specific examples from real school districts to support his 10-step program. Unlike others' suggestions, he provides a comprehensive, doable framework that should be a standard reference book in any superintendent's office. His systemic analysis of school district improvement and specific examples to fill in that framework create a road map for the nation. Let's get to work."--Jack D. Dale, Superintendent (05/26/2009)"

"This book provides a confluence of successful programs, instructional strategies, and ideas for the alignment of resources to guide principals andsite and district office staffs. This compendium of programs and strategies for struggling schools will save educators time as they plan their work."--Glen Ishiwata, Superintendent (05/26/2009)"
