"If every school board member and every superintendent read The American Superintendent we′d be a long way toward building the team structure we need to guide American schools."?Anne L. Bryant, executive director, National School Boards Association. The American School Superintendent takes a close look at the ever mounting pressures on the American school superintendent. Drawing on interviews with a broad cross–section of superintendents from across the country, the authors propose changes in the way the role of superintendent is conceived and map out promising strategies for easing the burdens of the job. They also offer invaluable guidance from practitioners on working wit boards, diffusing crises, on building community coalitions, and fostering school improvement and technological innovation to meet the needs of the future.
