www.tcpress.com, $31.95

Here's a comprehensive approach to board leadership referred to as reform governance. This accessible framework brings together all the work of an urban school board ranging from big ideas about core beliefs and theories of action for change to fundamental relationships and processes through which boards and superintendents work together. Other areas help school board members understand why it's necessary to redesign urban districts, offer principles that boards can use as guides to action and show how a strong board and superintendent team can work together.
