From three brave voices in the trenches come more healthy, easy-to-apply, straightforward school leadership ideas and practices than from any other book in print. No-nonsense advice about what works, what never did, and what you can do to put your school(s) and yourself atop the excellence pile, modestly or raucously crowing.

Three of Illinois‚ top educational leaders—Jim Rosborg, Max McGee, and Jim Burgett—offer 336 pages of advice that includes leadership, ethics, communications, trust, teachers, assessment—even personal hygiene, getting those irksome referenda passed, and what to say to the press, and when. It‚s simply a must for every school administrator.

Why should your Board buy this book for every administrator in your district?

The authors are three guys who rose to the top in school administration because, under fire, they could provide practical, successful solutions to almost any predicament. Even more, they could innovate, cut through the jargon and nonsense, and lead. So on these pages, they share what they have learned: ideas, high-impact lessons about leadership, and everyday problem solving that can be immediately implemented at every school level. Their combined wisdom and stories will make administrators think, laugh, and act.
