"The authors are to be applauded for advocating it is time for education leaders and skilled teachers to re-claim their role in the dynamic processes of educational change, particularly in the current context of the complex `social drivers' identified early in the text. Innovative approaches to setting the course for career readiness and fostering positive attitudes to life-long learning are presented and supported with a veritable smorgasbord (including input from over forty-one jurisdictions around the world), of supports, resources and guidance systems to assist all students in finding their own `True North'." -- Susan E. Elliot-Johns, Ph.D. "Without question the job market demands agility, resourcefulness, innovation and fearlessness. How will the education community respond? The authors of Good to Great to Innovate brilliantly map the DNA of a relevant education. Our call: to strip barriers and envision unlimited pathways to success." -- Debbie Hedgepeth, Assistant Superintendent "Through extensive research and practical examples, this outstanding book puts forward a compelling case for structured, collaborative inquiry processes to achieve success for ALL students. We are reminded of the importance of maintaining a relentless focus, keeping alignment at all levels and feedback processes where feedback is both given and received. Significantly, the authors show that attention to perception data, particularly those of students, is vital in order to move from Good to Great to Innovate. The emphasis on student voice and collaboration between all stakeholders, elements too often lacking in previous school improvement conversations, sets this book apart and lays the foundation for leaders at all levels to challenge the `status quo'." -- Janelle Wills, Director "Congratulations and thanks Lyn Sharratt and Gale Harild for this inspirational look at Innovation as the next step to move school systems from Good to Great. Lynn and Gale have synthesized current research and put forward real-life case studies to demonstrate that students succeed when there is an acute focus on instructional practice that is elevated by shifts in teacher mind-set and leadership development. The authors have cleverly presented complex data and research using straightforward language and graphics. This enticing approach will help educators clearly understand that the attainable solutions presented in each chapter will support every student. The examples and advice shared throughout this book and it's precursor, Putting FACES on the Data have been catalysts for leading my team to thoughtful collective action within our K- 12 Family of Schools as we create pathways for literate graduates together." -- Joy Uniac, Superintendent of Education
