"Education is not just a matter for the politicians and professionals; it is a matter for all of us. For we are the public in public education. When we work together, we can do it. . . . We can reach and teach these children."—John Stanford
Victory in Our Schools is a prescriptive, proven handbook for dramatically increasing community involvement in public schools, based on the author's recognized achievements as Seattle's Superintendent of Schools. Stanford outlines the ten essentials for changing our schools while offering a concrete action plan to mobilize the entire community—from parents and business leaders to retirees and the media—into an army of education leaders.
Prescriptive, provocative, and empowering Victory in Our Schools breaks the seemingly impossible task of reform into small but powerful steps any person can take, right away, to win the battle for excellence.
