"There has never been a time where we need more courage from educational leaders than right now. The ESSA provides new opportunities to rethink school improvement and accountability, but only the courageous need apply. Principals must be courageous lead learners willing to collaboratively inquire and develop themselves and their staff. This book tells you why and how to do this. It is a must read and a must do!"
