Remembering What's Important: Priorities of School Leadership
Bonnici, Charles A.
Rowman & Littlefield Education
In "Remembering What's Important: Priorities of School Leadership," Charles A. Bonnici addresses several issues facing school leaders through strategies supported by real-life examples and anecdotes. The issues addressed include questions such as: (1) What is the most urgent issue faced by a new school leader?; (2) How can this leader address the chaos of being both a teacher trainer and evaluator?; (3) What are the school leader's personal responsibilities for hiring, training, and retaining staff?; (4) How does the school leader create a positive learning ambiance in a school?; (5) How can this leader address the issues created by the physical plant of the building itself?; (6) How can a principal treat the difficult waters of the social and political context of the outside world that impacts on the school?; and (7) How can a school leader insure that the management systems created within a school and the gains in student achievement accomplished are maintained and improved upon after he or she leaves the school?
