Transforming Schools: Shared Leadership, Equity and Evidence

A principal shares the successful turnaround story in an elementary school serving students from low-income, primarily Latino homes in San Francisco. He emphasizes the powerful role principals have in school reform and explains how their shared leadership approach and results-oriented cycle of inquiry process dramatically improved student performance over a 13-year period. Concrete examples illustrate how this approach engages key constituents: teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, parents, community members, businesses leaders, and students themselves.

Reform Excerpt Chapter 2

Raymond R. Isola and Jim Cummins analyze education reform initiatives during the past 60 years and explore difficult questions, including:

• Do standardized tests boost achievement?
• Does systematic phonics instruction increase reading comprehension?
• Is it reasonable to expect English learners to learn English in just 1 year?
• Is underachievement caused by bad teaching or by low socioeconomic status?

The authors argue that when policy ignores credible education research, there are consequences for vulnerable student populations, especially those from low-income and linguistically diverse communities.

Roles of the Principal Excerpt Chapter 3

This book explores the multidimensional roles of the school principal, including instructional leader, resource manager, social architect of learning, and community organizer and activist.

Dr. Isola is the principal who led the successful turnaround effort at Sanchez School over 13 years. Readers will readily relate to his perspective, examples, and stories about:
• the principal’s roles in school transformation,
• the principal’s efforts to balance attention to top-down reform mandates with socioemotional and instructional approaches that lead to real student learning, and
• the principal’s collaborations for shared leadership, family engagement, and teacher agency.

This is a story told by a principal, Raymond R. Isola, and a university researcher, Jim Cummins, to illustrate the dynamic and complex processes of education reform during a turbulent time in the history of education in this country. It is a tale of a principal and his staff making choices in the best interests of their students.
