Grit....Don't tackle education without this essential ingredient.
The book I share with you "is about educational leadership. It tells the stories of seven educational leaders who made the difficult decision to change their school to public charter school status. Several of the stories are told by those leaders themselves. Their journeys span over twenty-five years in many cases. The authors also conducted follow-up interviews, dialogues, and investigations to explore the keys to their sustained success over time. These leaders all possessed an unwavering commitment to their school communities and maintained unusual dedication to their stakeholders. " Rebecca A. Shore, Maria M Leahy and Joel E. Medley
Thanks to the dedication and vision of these three educators, one piece of the history of school choice has been shared. The "grit" in each educator's story makes for good reading.
I am honored to see The Learning Center Charter School's story in print in these pages.
