- Publisher's Summary
- Paul Kimmelman captures a unique vision for school improvement that is based on the intersection of federal policy compliance, effective leadership, and innovation. While educational leaders must be responsive to federal policy mandates, compliance with federal policy alone won't guarantee school improvement. In Kimmelman's view, effective leadership and innovation are essential ingredients for meaningful systemic improvement. "The School Leadership Triangle: From Compliance to Innovation" provides leadership teams with a solid foundation for discussing the key issues that can lead to substantive improvements in their schools and districts while addressing the challenges of federal laws.
