What’s missing in education reform in the United States?

Providing a combined 70 years of classroom and administrative experience, renowned authors James Guthrie and Patrick Schuermann offer a practice-based approach, grounded in research and theory, to achieving and maintaining an atmosphere of success in schools through effective leadership.

The best way for me articulate an insightful glimpse of self is through the words of a friend. Michelle states: "You are a very generous man. You understand what it means to be a man, what differentiates the man from the boy, and what males and females alike need and want from you as a man. You give great attention and focus to your ability to handle responsibilities, understand the needs of others (often more than they understand their needs themselves), and deliver on those needs in a very special and unique way. You are clear about the importance of righteous good deeds and this central principle in your life generates much of the giving you do to the deserving and the not-so deserving. Your heart is in all that you do and you are so forgiving of others, yet you never seem to fully forgive yourself, finding more appropriate respite in The Cherisher and Sustainer of the Universe and keeping faith in His message that His mercy outreaches His wrath. You are extremely self-motivated and driven. When you have set your mind to something, there is little that can deter you from the path unless it is well substantiated. Others who stand close to you can sense this as you pull them closer or as you push them away. What you know, you know and you are also wise enough to know that there is much that you still have to comprehend."
