Review

Transforming schools into communities of learners is one of the most promising approaches to school reform to surface in the last decade. As educators begin the process of change, they will find the insights, guidance, and suggested activities provided in this text to be of great value when working with staff members. (Edward Lilly, Chairman, Educational Leadership, Special Education, Educational Foundations)

Roberts and Pruitt's work is enormously helpful to those working at sustaining learning communities. The ideas are presented in a reader friendly way that will engage teachers and educational leaders as well. (Linnea Weiland, Director, Curriculum and Instruction)

This book is a must for those seeking to prepare school leaders as well as those seeking to improve school performance. Roberts and Pruitt have presented us with a scholarly work that provides the nuts and bolts for those seeking to understand school leadership. (Leslie Agard-Jones, Dean, College of Education)

Schools as Professional Learning Communities is an extraordinary achievement. It brings together what a long-time practitioner can see and sense. It is an illumination of an exciting path to a constantly improving instructional community. (S. David Adler, Superintendent)
