What separates this book from other educational books I have read is the authenticity included in the book. The authors have seen a tremendous number of administrators, teachers, and students in various geographic/SES environments. It's not a fairy tale about what educations should be, or a "woe is me" attitude for those in schools. The skills effective leaders have are conveyed clearly through four "Standards of Excellence". How do they support their opinions of what great leaders are in schools? By giving in-depth examples of people doing just that in their district! The focus at the end of each of the standards are the characteristics possessed by the great leaders in education, whether it be a principal, teacher, coach, etc.
As a teacher, this book was a beneficial read for me. Unfortunately not because it made me realize I'm a great leader, but rather just how far away I am from being close to those truly special individuals in Education. By the end of the book, I had gained additional resources, motivation with a sense of direction, and something that will be on my office desk as I will re-read my highlighted sections to remind myself of the numerous ways I can improve as a teacher and leader. The three gentlemen who wrote this book created something I would recommend to all of my colleagues I work with. These authors GET IT. It's clear they are in the schools and talking to educators.
No matter what your role in education I highly recommend Start Right Now!
Second, it is incredibly practical. The book's title says it all, they give you everything to get started right now.
Third, it is a great book to gift to other school leaders. After reading it I immediately sent out a few copies to administrators in my district and it sparked great conversation.
Great book and well worth the read!
