Abstract:

Annotation

What happens when a powerful school leader leaves? What do innovating schools do to keep their learning agendas alive? How can schools regroup when upheavals at the district, state, or federal level threaten to cripple their programs? In Promises Kept: Sustaining School and District Leadership in a Turbulent Era, Steven Jay Gross draws on his visits to schools in the midst of reform to answer these questions and discuss the triumphs and challenges that innovating schools face. Using examples from schools and districts throughout the United States, Gross shows teachers and school leaders how to sustain positive change and effective innovations, and he provides useful tools for evaluating challenges and progress. Gross addresses the critical challenges of leadership succession, changes to site-specific innovations, power struggles at the district and state levels, federal requirements (including the No Child Left Behind Act), and shared governance and other democratic forums. If you're an educator who's been feeling increasingly frustrated and drained by what's happening in your school or district, you'll find in this book practical and inspiring strategies for refocusing your vision and transforming negative energy into positive change. Steven Jay Gross is Professor of Educational Leadership at the Temple University College of Education, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
