Additional Book Details

"There are other books on school culture, but the tell-it-like-it-is, no-holds-barred style of writing makes this a book I would recommend to others."
—Frank Buck, Curriculum & Special Education Supervisor
Talladega City Schools, AL

"The clear, concise themes for each chapter are backed by research and provide an understanding of what needs to be done to improve school climate. This book could be used by a building or district team study to measure the cultural temperature, by teacher teams to start a grassroots movement to improve school climate, or by reflective leaders who want to continuously improve their organizations."
—Edward J. Drugo, Principal
Latrobe Elementary School, PA
