“Pernille makes a case for the need to change from a traditional hierarchical approach of control to a shared, empowering approach. This book outlines steps that administrators can take to share leadership in their schools and teachers can take to share the responsibility of learning with the students.”
—William Chamberlain, Teacher
Noel Elementary School


Key features

This book is for both administrators and teachers. The first half examines the obstacles administrators face in leading an empowered school where teachers have agency and voice. Each chapter tackles an obstacle, lays out the benefits of changing the system, and gives leaders a plan to do so. Following the same structure, the second half of the book addresses the challenges teachers face in leading empowered students. Again, each chapter addresses the obstacles and the benefits of change, and gives teachers a plan for action. Throughout the book are stories from educators who have put these principles into practice to change their schools. The book discusses several ways to empower teachers and students, including:

  • Cultivating the experts at your school
  • Revitalizing the staff meeting
  • Changing classroom setup
  • Giving students a voice

There is also the Connected Educators Series website where readers can connect with all of the authors of the series, find more resources, and find real support for putting flipped leadership into practice.
