Creating the high schools of our choice.


Creating the high schools of our choice.

Westerberg, Tim.

Eye on Education


133 pages




Westerberg calls upon his decades of experience as a high school principal and the example set by Breaking Ranks II by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, a seminal work in recent school reform. He follows the structure of Breaking Ranks II here to give principals and central office administrators ways to institute positive change, covering collaborative leadership, professional learning communities and the strategic use of data to create high schools where teachers want to be and a vision that teachers want to achieve; the roles of teachers, principals and central office administrators in achieving a style of leadership that creates high schools of their choice; personalized school environments that create high schools where kids want to be, and curriculum, instruction and assessment techniques that create high schools with a core academic mission.
