Synopsis

This book will be a valuable tool for all middle school leaders, be they new to the position or seasoned veterans. The authors call for a more comprehensive definition of leadership at the middle school level, because headteachers at the middle level, perhaps more so than at any other level, must develop a staff that believes it can contribute to every aspect of the school's programme and tone. Developing the qualities and using the organizational tools presented in this book will help middle school headteachers truly become leaders of leaders.







The purpose of this book is to stimulate the reader's thinking and planning expertise. The authors describe practices that have worked in their schools, but are well aware that not all practices will be equally effective, or even applicable, in all schools. Hence the authors invite reader modification of any and all ideas contained herein.
