"This book is insightful, practical, and uplifting."
―Michael Fullan, OISE/University of Toronto
"Jones's approach is interesting, refreshing, and ambitious. He changes the paradigm on principal leadership by framing differently both the what and how of a principal's role."
―Thomas Hoerr, Head of School, New City School, St. Louis, Missouri
“Jones writes with the voice of experience and as a friend of young people. He consistently challenges what he sees as the ‘business as usual’ of schooling, including the current dominant model of school reform―raise standards, test children, reward and punish teachers and principals.”
―From the Foreword by Robert V. Bullough Jr., Center for the Improvement of Teacher Education and Schooling (CITES), Brigham Young University
