Urban school superintendents face unprecedented challenges. They
must ensure that all students achieve a high level of performance
despite a lack of resources, the intractable problems of race and
poverty, a chaotic governance structure, and the often conflicting
demands of teachers, parents, unions, and the community. This
important book, edited by the co-directors of the prestigious
Harvard Urban Superintendents Program (USP), explores the ways in
which superintendents can make a difference in the lives of each
child, every day, by being knowledgeable about and driven by what
happens in the classroom.
The editors and distinguished contributors cover a wide range of
vital topics that superintendents face from the day they are hired
to the day they retire, such as how superintendents can most
effectively communicate their vision, plan strategically, institute
instructional reform, engage the community, and allocate resources.
The book is filled with illustrative examples of well-known
superintendents who are trailblazing new means to achieve
educational fairness for all children and are changing the
landscape of urban school systems today. In addition, "Every Child,
Every Classroom, Every Day" highlights the Urban Superintendents
Program's Leadership Framework, which is designed to aid
administrators and educators in decision making and achieving
equity. An ancillary CD containing teaching notes and exhibits is
also included (in the print edition only) as an aid to teachers who
wish to scaffold material discussed in the text.
Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not
included as part of eBook file. These materials will be made
available for download upon purchase of the digital edition
Co-published with "Education Week" and the American Association
of School Administrators.
