"As principals, we so often get caught up in the day-to-day management of our schools. We must quit putting out fires and instead focus our attention on leading, specifically as curriculum leaders. The Principal as Curriculum Leader provides a clear framework with a plan of action to put you and your school on a path to student success."
—Stephen Baker, Principal
Smithfield-Selma High School, NC
"The Principal as Curriculum Leader is a blueprint for principals to use when implementing curriculum reform. It brings clarity to the many trends, mandates, and guidelines that masquerade as simple solutions to complex issues. This book should be read and owned by every principal and curriculum leader."
—Dr. Jerry V. Congleton, Former Superintendent
Weldon City Schools
This text is both practical, and appropriately theoretical. Principal interns learn about the "big picture" of curriculum leadership, and also have the opportunity to look at the details of various aspects of curriculum leadership, such as a learning-centered schedule.
