Getting It Done: Leading Academic Success in Unexpected Schools
Chenoweth, Karin; Theokas, Christina
Harvard Education Press
"Getting It Done" describes in clear and helpful detail what leaders of successful high-poverty and high-minority schools have done to promote and sustain student achievement. It follows two celebrated books by Karin Chenoweth: "It's Being Done," which established that the work of educating all children is possible, and "How It's Being Done," which examined the structures and processes necessary to support academic success. "Getting It Done" turns to the crucial issue of school leadership, exploring how school leaders have promoted unprecedented levels of school and student achievement. A book that focuses on real leaders--and on the knowledge and skills that they have employed on behalf of heightened achievement--"Getting It Done" will be essential reading for school leaders, and for all who believe that a successful education can be attained by all students.
