Abstract:

The authors of this guide to transformation in urban schools are convinced that the key ingredient for school renewal is fearless leadership. Fearless leaders work in schools under-resourced and overburdened and serve disproportionately large numbers of children who live in poverty and face racism daily. They are ordinary educators committed to proving that demographics need not be destiny. This book will help you bridge the divide that separates urban students from their birthright of a high-quality education. Each chapter closes with reflections and activities that will help your leadership team produce its own roadmap for change. --from publisher description
