Elizabeth A. City is director of instructional strategy with the Executive Leadership Program for Educators at Harvard University and a faculty member at Boston's School Leadership Institute.


This practical guide to developing and implementing system-level improvement strategies is a must-read for leadership teams committed to driving concrete results for all students. Through a blend of theory and real-world examples, City and Curtis draw a road map for spreading excellent teaching and learning across an entire school system. Stacey M. Childress, lecturer, Harvard Business School" Curtis and City reveal the emperor without clothes when they conclude that too many educational systems have a strategic plan without a strategy. Their insights give teachers, leaders, and policymakers long-overdue relief from the tyranny of planning processes that elevate the production of documents over meaningful progress in teaching and learning. The authors challenge the common enthusiasm for multiple initiatives and replace it with remarkable focus and impact. This is a wise and important book.
