Review:

Improved leadership, implementation, and achievement in education all require good communication: citizens to schools, administrators with teachers, and teachers with children. This important book explains and illustrates in the 'information age' just howto get the word out: the what, to what ends, using what means (including the latest theories & technologies), all for the benefit of education and society.... (Bruce S. Cooper, professor and vice chair, Division of Administration, Policy and Urban Education (APUE), at the Fordham University Graduate Scho, Ph.D., professor and vice chair, Division of Administration, Policy and Urban Education (APUE), at the Fordham University Graduate School of Education, New York City)

Kowalski et al. consider the importance of communication for school administrators. They argue that effective communication is linked to effective reform and discuss communication in connection with public relations and school reform, as well as organizational improvement and culture change. They consider it in the context of an information-based and reform -minded society and detail applications of relational communication: making a school a learning organization, practicing democratic leadership, and performing critical tasks such as visioning and planning, managing conflict, building positive relationships, and working with school councils. This book is for courses taken by aspiring and practicing school administrators. (Reference and Research Book News)

No doubt, communication has always been essential to educational leaders. But the unique combination of factors in which contemporary leaders find themselves―an information age, a reform and accountability arena, and learning communities―makes developing communication skills more critical than ever. Kowalski, Petersen, and Fusarelli have created a research-based and practical text that acknowledges these unique contexts and provides an excellent resource for superintendents, principals, and other school leaders for integrating effective communication in their work.
