Powerless to Powerful: Leadership for School Change by Charles Salina, Suzann Girtz and Joanie Eppinga (Lanham, MD, USA: Rowman & Littlefield, 2015), $24.00 paperback.
The pressure is on. Educators and administrators face increasing pressure to make sure students pass standardized tests and graduate. Staff at many schools feel defensive and demoralized as a result of being unable to meet standards that they didn’t set and don’t know how to achieve.
This book describes the lived experience of school transformation. The underlying principles, based on servant-leadership, are applicable to any school. We share our research-based experience in hopes that more schools can be transformed through lasting change that builds efficacy, a sense of purpose, and meaningful relationships.
