Out of the Crisis: A Supplement to Breakthrough Leadership
Out of the Crisis: A Supplement to Breakthrough Leadership, offers educators and policy makers the processes, strategies and solutions they need to reimagine schools and close the opportunity gaps that have never been more apparent.
The Breakthrough Leadership book was born out of a sense of urgency to meet the twin crises of COVID 19 and racial injustice. This supplement provides specific strategies being used to address the real challenges schools are facing right now, including what to do when
- Families are overwhelmed
- Students are disengaging and facing new levels of trauma
- Students have inequitable access to solid instruction and learning environments
- Competing interests in the community, resistance to change, and lack of trust add to instability for student learning
Each section begins with a current challenge faced by school leaders across the nation, connects it to one of the six guiding principles of Breakthrough Leadership, a realistic case study, and an essential question to make connections to their own contexts and lay the groundwork for finding solutions. It also includes recommended solutions, an accountability chart which includes solutions for stakeholder groups and individuals plus recommended resources and a conclusion.
It’s a new day; the time is now for breakthrough leadership at all levels.
