Editorial Reviews

Review

DuFour and Fullan lay out, in a clear and compelling way, what needs to be done to move from isolated and transient pockets of excellence to excellence at the system level to achieve excellent outcomes not only for students, but to continue to improve to meet future challenges.

Dylan Wiliam, Education Consultant and Author of Embedded Formative Assessment and Inside the Black Box

In this deeply practical and grounded book, DuFour and Fullan make whole-system reform seem possible. They describe how to make the systemic become the local in every school so system goals become people goals. This book is a must-read.

Helen Timperley, Professor of Education, The University of Auckland

"DuFour and Fullan make a bold call to every member of the school community to align their behavior with the business of educating children. Random acts of proficiency will not transform education. It is unacceptable to leave implementation to chance.

- --Anthony Muhammad, PLC Associate and Author of Transforming School Culture and The Will to Lead, the Skill to Teach
