Transforming America's Schools:
An Administrators' Call to Action

John Murphy and Jeffry Schiller

We can stop wringing our hands over the desperate plight of American public schools. Now we can act. John Murphy and Jeffry Schiller - a spectacularly successful school superintendent and an accomplished educational researcher - have given us courageous, detailed, blow-by-blow account of how to turn the schools around.

The message of Murphy and Schiller is that we how know-from research and practical experience - a great deal about what works and how to make it happen. What is needed is the drive, the will, and the vision to unify all the many recent findings into a practical plan for transforming the schools. Not only school administrators, school board members, and teachers, but also parents, community leaders, and legislators need to read Transforming American Schools. This book shows how the schools can and must be revolutionized to give America a truly world-class educational system.
