Muhammad and Hollie write from experience. Both have led the transformation of traditional schools into exemplary schools by demonstrating the will to challenge the prevailing culture and by helping their staffs develop the skills to better meet student needs. I urge educators to embrace the ideas they present for changing their practices and to work together collaboratively to develop and implement the powerful instructional strategies offered in this book. --Richard DuFour, Author and Education Consultant
With uncommon candor and clarity, Muhammad and Hollie challenge us as educators to examine our underlying beliefs, accept responsibility for building a school culture that ensures adult and student learning, and employ the practical and proven instructional practices needed to achieve these goals. I implore every educator, from classroom teachers to policymakers, to read this book and act on its compelling, common-sense recommendations. --Mike Mattos, Educator and Author
The Will to Lead, the Skill to Teach puts into words, backed by facts, what some of us in education have intuitively felt for a very long while: positive motivation to make a difference in children s lives combined with the tools for effective instruction is absolutely essential to improve the quality of our children s education. This book does not stop with research it outlines specific techniques teachers can use in their classrooms and schools. Muhammad and Hollie have produced a beautiful combination of theory into practice that should be in the hands of every educator."
--Bob Howe, Executive Director, Michigan Elementary & Middle School Principals Association
"Dr. Muhammad has done it again! With Dr. Hollie, he has created another practical, informational book for any principal who wishes to transform his or her school culture. --Debra L. Jones, superintendent, Waverly Community Schools, Michigan
