Holding Sacred Ground: Essays on Leadership, Courage and Endurance in Our Schools

Hardback
Carl Glickman draws from his more than fifteen years of experience as director of a nationally validated school improvement program with more than one hundred diverse K-12 schools, and more recently, his two years spent examining some of the most successful progressive schools in the United States. He offers proven advice on leadership formats, approaches, and strategies for enhancing teacher thinking and collective action - and provides specific examples of curriculum, methods and strategies for improving student achievement while building citizen capabilities. He explains the types of standards and policies that can protect unique schools and document success for students. And he shows how sustaining progressive schools over the long haul offers the greatest hope for reinvigorating an informed and caring citizenry.
