Product Code: B-NPLB

The challenge for the 21st century and beyond, Dr. Lovelady-Spain maintains, is to make certain that every child has the opportunity to attend a highly effective school. From her experience, highly effective schools do not just get that way; more often than not, they are led by highly effective principals who have been coached. This book will raise the level of awareness about what is preventing principals from making a greater impact. It challenges policymakers to take specific and immediate actions in support of principals, to obtain higher results in student achievement.
