“Too often the response to good ideas is ‘it won’t work here.’ This book respects that perspective by providing school leaders with studies from the field that describe efforts that have and have not worked. The concept of shared leadership is presented in a ‘real world’ context, including the voices of those who don’t want it. The reader will develop a better understanding of what true collaboration can look like along with the challenges leaders may face as the culture of their school adapts to change.”
Learning to Lead Together connects leadership theory with experiences from the field, it is very useful to practitioners and to individuals preparing for formal school leadership positions.
“Janet Chrispeel’s Learning to Lead Together provides a rich anthology of real experiences of school based leaders caught in the vortex of leading and learning on the one hand and teaching and leading on the other. I highly recommend this new work to students seeking real answers to real problems.”
