The Principal 50

The Principal 50 : Critical Leadership Questions for Inspiring Schoolwide Excellence

""Why do I lead?"" With this deceptively simple question, best-selling author Baruti K. Kafele begins a powerful examination of what it takes to make a school community achieve the greatest success in the classroom and beyond. In The Principal 50: Critical Leadership Questions for Inspiring Schoolwide Excellence, Kafele, a veteran school administrator, guides motivated school leaders through 50 self-reflection exercises designed to yield a deeper understanding of the meaning behind the work that they do. Along with many other insights, this book shows how best to:

Inspire and motivate students, teachers, and other school staff to approach their work with vigor and purpose.
Ensure that all students, regardless of color, creed, or origin, are valued and represented in the school culture.
Focus mission and vision statements to address students' most critical needs and integrate shared values and objectives into the fabric of the school.
Engage parents and other community members so that they feel a stake in the school's success.

Brimming with passion, written from the heart, and informed by hard-earned experience, this transformative book is essential reading for principals and other building-level administrators determined to reinvigorate their practice, revitalize their staff, and-most importantly-guarantee the strongest outcomes for students.
