Real-Time Problem Solving in Schools: Case Studies for School Leaders
Piltch, Benjamin; Quinn, Terrence
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
Parents, lawmakers, supervisors, and unions are among the many constituencies that demand influence, if not control, of the educational process. How does the school administrator balance all the needs of the various groups and still remain true to the ultimate, though most powerless constituency-the students? Through case studies and anecdotes based on real-life experience, the authors share the ups and downs of the educational world seeking to find the balance that is most effective in insuring success. This book details decision-making and actions taken that dramatically affect the success of students and schools as well as school systems.
