What's worth fighting for in the principalship? by Michael Fullan( Book )

23 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"World-renowned for his expert advice on school change, Michael Fullan has completely revised and updated this classic work written directly to principals. In the years since publication of the first edition, policymakers and school reformers have pointed increasingly to the school principal as the most important agent of needed change in our schools. Along with this recognition, principals are now expected to do even more within their already overloaded schedules. With a sense of urgency that will spur principals into action, this second edition is more targeted, more specific, and provides more concrete examples from the field to reveal a new agenda for school leaders. Michael Fullan incisively characterizes the current state of the principalship and furnishes updated Action Guidelines to help school and district leaders work for meaningful change."--Jacket
The six secrets of change : what the best leaders do to help their organizations survive and thrive by Michael Fullan( Book )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Fullan explores essential lessons for business and public sector leaders for surviving and thriving in today's complex environment. He draws on his acclaimed work in bringing about large-scale and substantial change in education reform in both public school systems and universities, as well as engaging in major change initiatives internationally. The Six Secrets of Change is filled with lessons that are insightful, actionable, and concisely communicable. These lessons are "secrets" not because there is a conspiracy to hide them from public view, but because they are often difficult to grasp in their deep meaning, and challenging to appreciate and act on in combination. Fullan makes these so-called secrets accessible and useful and offers illustrative examples from a variety of businesses, health organizations, and public education systems

"In addition to its outstanding analysis of "total teachers" and school culture, this book provides action guidelines for teachers and for principals that are filled with insights that will help school educators take responsibility for reform." "In an effort to develop new mind sets, knowledge-bases, and day-to-day dispositions and actions that should characterize the education profession of the future, this book talks about how teachers can work together for positive change, how they can collaborate with others outside the classroom to improve what goes on within it, and how principals and other leaders can support their teachers to make this happen."--Jacket

What's worth fighting for out there? by Andy Hargreaves( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This final book in the What's Worth Fighting For? trilogy concludes that the relationship between those in the school and those outside it must be fundamentally reframed. In a world of growing complexity and rapid change, if educators are going to bring about significant improvements in teaching and learning within schools, they must forge strong, open, and interactive connections with communities beyond them. To do this, the authors urge teachers and principals to go "wider" by developing new relationships with parents, employers, universities, technology, and the broader profession. At the same time, educators must also go "deeper" into the heart of their own practice by rediscovering the passion and moral purpose that make teaching and learning exciting and effective. As in the other two books in this series, the authors provide guidelines for teachers and principals to help them expand and improve their thinking and practice, and to show policy makers and communities what they can do and why they should do it for the sake of the future of children and society."--Jacket

The first two books focused on understanding the real complexity of educational reform in action. This book pushes even deeper by providing new insights and lessons of change concerning moral purpose, and what is called tri-level reform - the school and community, the local district and the state. It draws on reform initiatives across many levels and countries so that the ideas are grounded in the reality of actual projects and findings as the forces of change play themselves out within and across the three levels."--Jacket

Big-city school reforms : lessons from New York, Toronto, and London by Michael Fullan( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Big cities have struggled to improve public school systems. This book shows why--and offers a framework for achieving future success. Fullan and Boyle, internationally renowned thinkers on school change, demonstrate that while the educational challenges of big cities may be overwhelming, they are not insurmountable. They draw on ten years' of research to identify six essential "push" and "pull" actions that enable big school systems to improve student achievement. Leaders must push to challenge the status quo, convey a high sense of urgency, and have the courage needed to intervene. But they need to also pull together to create a commonly-owned strategy, develop professional power, and attend to sustainability. Examining three major cities--New York, Toronto, and London--through the decade of 2002-2012, this book weaves case studies with careful analysis and recommendations to hone in on which policies and strategies work best to raise the bar for all students and reduce the gap for the disadvantaged. Big-City School Reforms offers invaluable advice to those leading the next phase of school reform in cities around the world. This is an eminently practical book that focuses on big problems and big solutions." -- Publisher's description

Provides a much-needed leadership guide for today's turbulent climate. Includes illustrative examples from business, education, nonprofit, and government sectors The author shows leaders how to eschew policies and strategies that focus on shallow and short-term goals and develop leadership skills for long-term success"--
