From three brave voices in the trenches come more easy-to-apply, straightforward school leadership ideas and practices than from any other book in print. No-nonsense, often funny advice about what works, what never did, and what you can do to put your school(s) and yourself atop the excellence pile, modestly or raucously crowing. Three of Illinois’ top educational leaders offer 336 pages of advice that includes leadership, ethics, communications, trust, teachers, assessment—even personal hygiene, getting those irksome referenda passed, and what to say to the press, and when. It’s a must for every school administrator. Why buy or read this book? The authors are three guys who rose to the top in school administration because, under fire, they could provide practical, successful solutions to almost any predicament.
