- Publisher's Summary
- This book builds upon the authors' recently published The Fourth Way: The Inspiring Future for Educational Change by helping educators to focus on the nitty-gritty, boiler-room challenges of change leaders and the expected obstacles they must anticipate, engage, and overcome to enact Fourth Way strategies and values. It will be of interest to all educational leaders who seek to combine inspiring and visionary leadership with the practical skills and street-level political acumen to make the changes that have to happen to improve education today. This book will operationalize Fourth Way ideas so that readers can use these new examples, vignettes and strategies to implement their own action plans to achieve positive and sustainable reform. Success stories from around the globe will illustrate how small and large systems are now working with Fourth Way premises to promote learning and achievement.
