Breakthrough Principals: A Step-by-Step Guide to Building Stronger Schools debunks the myth of the ‘superhero’ principal by detailing the practices of leaders at our nation’s fastest-gaining, high-poverty public schools. Whether principals work in a turnaround environment or are seeking to make a good school great, the book offers a concrete, action-focused plan for diagnosing school needs and implementing systems and practices that boost student learning.
Breakthrough Principals is brought to life by case studies of exemplary principals, drawing on their experiences to lead readers step-by-step to elevate teaching and learning; improve school culture; attract and support talented teachers; and involve families in advancing student success.
Below, watch videos of breakthrough principals in action.
“In Breakthrough Principals New Leaders distills what it has learned from training, supporting, and studying exemplary school leaders into a step-by-step guide that can help every principal — particularly those leading schools most in need of improvement — achieve similarly transformative results.”
