The Savvy Principal: What Streetwise Principals Know
This book is a manual on how to become a streetwise and savvy principal. These leaders do things very differently from other principals and what they do that distinguishes them is not found in studies on effective principals. There are two reasons for this: 1.) researchers aren’t asking the right questions and 2.) even if researchers were asking the right questions, principals would be reluctant to reveal their responses because of the controversial nature. This book provides specific and candid suggestions and ideas for becoming a standout leader. It recommends actions and strategies to positively influence others behavior. It also suggests tactics and actions to avoid. Because, in reality, if principals are successful: students, teachers, schools and superintendents will benefit. And if this is the case; it naturally follows that school boards, parents and communities will be proud and pleased with what is happening in their schools. Everyone wins when the principal is successful.
