A School "On Fire": One Principal's Road to Success.
Keaster, Richard D.
NASSP Bulletin, v79 n568 p39-48 Feb 1995
Describes a typical "good" school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, that was transformed into an exceptional learning environment by a highly motivated principal and her staff. Audubon School's principal succeeded because she created a climate of high expectations; exposed teachers to professional growth activities; encouraged faculty achievement, creativity, and risk-taking; badgered the central office for necessary resources; encouraged grant-writing; and shared decisions with faculty.
