Book Review for Aim High, Achieve More: How to Transform Urban Schools Through Fearless Leadership
“At a time when public education is being held hostage by the crush of privatization, I found Aim High, Achieve More to be a respite in the storm. Jackson and McDermott provide a model of strategic thinking about the transformation of schools that is well grounded in academic research, knowledge of organizational change, and a belief in the resilience of the human spirit. They provide a detailed roadmap with examples of courageous leaders that have led school communities to success. I can't wait to share this book with school leaders across the county.” —Janice Jackson, Ed.D., Executive Director of Stanford Centerfor Opportunity Policy in Education, Stanford, Calif.
