Reviews

"A convincing conceptualization of schools as complex adaptive systems. The authors' recommendations that leaders must 'tinker at the margins' and lead in the 'zone of complexity' provide sound and practical advice for school leaders faced with creating unified educational systems that will be able to effectively support students with increasingly diverse learning needs."

-- David W. Peterson

"Far too long we have failed to acknowledge the large number of students relegated to parallel educational systems. This thought-provoking book provides an important first step in helping us surface the mental models we hold of the teaching and learning of diverse student populations."

-- Nelda Cambron-McCabe
"An insightful, informative, and thought-provoking book that deals with a topic that concerns every educator." -- Kate Kinley, Director of Administrative Training and Staff Development
