?This revealing and powerful book comes just in time, as we launch the biggest education reform in the past fifty years. It should be required reading not only for principals, but perhaps even more importantly for those who support and lead them.? ?Laura Schwalm, CaEdPartners; former superintendent, Garden Grove, California ?After decades of studying, working with, and enhancing the lot of principals . . . Fullan?s conclusion? Principals are needed now more than ever, and he?s smack on target. He doesn?t mince words, yet instills hope and confidence. Simply great . . . this book should be on every leader?s desk. Another bull?s-eye!? ?Willam Parrett, director, Center for School Improvement and Policy Studies, Boise State University, Idaho ?I just read The Principal and I am on fire and in love.
