Transforming School Culture

Transforming School Culture : How to Overcome Staff Division (Leading the Four Types of Teachers and Creating a Positive School Culture)

With foreword by Richard DuFour and Rebecca DuFour

Transforming School Culture provides a school improvement plan for leaders to overcome staff division, improve relationships, and transform toxic school cultures into healthy ones.

Dr. Anthony Muhammad contends that in order to transform school culture, we must understand why teachers continue to hold on to models or beliefs contrary to those put forth by their school or district. He explores the human behavior, social conditions, and history that cause the underlying conflict among the four different types of teachers in a school.

The second edition of this best-selling resource delivers powerful new insight into the four types of educators (Believers, Fundamentalists, Tweeners, and Survivors) and how school leaders can work with each group to create positive school culture. The book also includes Dr. Muhammad's latest research as well as a new chapter dedicated to answering frequently asked questions on culture and school leadership in education.

How this new edition will help you create a positive school culture: Study the author's research and observations of 34 schools--11 elementary schools, 14 middle schools, and 9 high schools--and how each school's staff supported or hindered student achievement. Consider the characteristics of positive school cultures and how your school's culture and climate may differ. Learn how laws such as the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and No Child Left Behind ( NCLB) impact teachers and school culture. Understand why teachers must work together to improve student performance. Obtain tips for creating a positive school culture and producing synergy.

New in This Second Edition: An updated research base, including over 60 new references Connections to ESSA as well as reflections on NCLB's impact on education Additional insights into the four types of educators Further guidance on what it takes to be a transformational leader and redirect Fundamentalists through communication, trust, capacity, and accountability A new chapter of frequently asked questions in regard to school culture, leadership, and the four types of educators
