"A distinctive, playful, and insightful look at the art and craft of leading a modern-day school."<br> --Roland S. Barth, educator and author of Improving Schools from Within<br> <br> "Reality-based cases and concepts worthy of reflection by all who are interested in improving school leadership.''<br> --Linton Deck, director of education and nonprofit applications, Center for Creative Leadership<br> <br> "Required reading for those who are or aspire to be principals and for those who prepare, train, or supervise them."<br> --Laraine Roberts, director of research and development, California School Leadership Academy<br> <br> Rather than view leadership and management as opposing factions, this book shows how the two ideals can serve as complements in building powerful school culture. The authors share real-life stories and examples of school leaders who have learned to adopt a bifocal approach and integrate the contradictions of their work.
