What’s Worth Fighting for in the Principalship. 2nd Edition

Michael Fullan

P/B • 80 pages
ISBN 9780807748336

World-renowned for his expert advice on school change, Michael Fullan has completely revised and updated this classic work written directly to principals. In the years since publication of the first edition, policymakers and school reformers have pointed increasingly to the school principal as the most important agent of needed change in our schools. Along with this recognition, principals are now expected to do even more within their already overloaded schedules. With a sense of urgency that will spur principals into action, this second edition is more targeted, more specific, and provides more concrete examples from the field to reveal a new agenda for school leaders. Michael Fullan incisively characterizes the current state of the principalship and furnishes updated Action Guidelines to help school and district leaders work for meaningful change.

This much-awaited, fully revised edition will help principals fight for:

  • Deep and creative learning for all students—not just minimum competency in tested achievement.
  • Professional learning communities that respect and engage teachers in the quest to improve learning.
  • Sustainable leadership that creates lasting improvement—rather than quick fixes that fade all too fast after early promise.
  • Relationships beyond their schools that will improve the school system as a whole.
