Review quote

"The perfect combination of theory and practice. This textbook offers educational leaders the laser-sharp focus required to create capacity within the staff and among the school. The Theory to Practice Framework not only provides practical application of theory and related content through real-world examples, but it will also strengthen graduate Educational Leadership programs preparing future leaders and enhance leadership styles of practicing school and district leaders."


--Andrew J. Pushchak, Program Head and Professor of Educational Leadership, Edinboro University





"This is a very important text for practitioners and scholars. The authors have done an exceptional job of presenting the important theoretical concepts and the practical application of these concepts, via the Theory to Practice Framework included in each chapter."


--April L. Peters, President-Elect (2016) of UCEA and Associate Professor of Educational Administration and Policy, University of Georgia


"Individually, these author-practitioners have positively impacted teaching and learning systems across the country. Together, they become a dynamic duo `hip-deep' in sharing practical, adaptable strategies to build the capacity of staff (at all levels) to take courageous action to help all students achieve their promise. They provide a framework for building, and more importantly, sustaining , a culture of equity and learning driven by capacity-building feedback. My copy is dog-eared from use!"





--Marty Moore, Executive Director, Learning Support and Partnerships, Springfield Public Schools R-12
