"This unique and original book is beautifully organized and takes us into the world of inquiry with all the pieces of the puzzle―principal, teachers, students, and coaches. Each of the four parts of the book has paired chapter: One outlining the frame of inquiry relative to the role in question; the other providing grounded example of practice as a given school year unfolds. The authors have provided a treasure trove of inquiry-based ideas connecting improved practice to student achievement. Their dozen lessons in the last chapter are keepsakes in their own right."(Michael Fullan, Author and Professor Emeritus 2011-04-07)
