"'Shared governance helps me get up and come to work every day--I'm excited! . . . I've always loved schools . . . For a few years, though, I really struggled, but now the fire is back!' These words from a principal illustrate how vividly the book portrays exemplary principals' perspectives."
From the Foreword by Sharon Conley
University of California, Santa Barbara
You're thinking about implementing shared governance in your school, but where do you go for help? The answer? The Fire Is Back!, the third of a three-book series on democratic-principal leadership from the League of Professional Schools. In their new book, the Blases show you:
How principals can involve parents and students in school-based decision making
How you can build the openness, sharing, and trust needed to become an "unleader"
Presenting shared governance and democratic schooling from the principals' perspectives, the authors provide a step-by-step plan to help you bring "unleadership" to your school. If you want greater effectiveness and productivity for your school through shared decision making, this book is for you. It's a valuable resource that can make school-based, facilitative governance a reality for your school.
