Leading for Learning How to Transform Schools into Learning Organizations by Phillip C. Schlechty pdf download. This book is about differences between and among schools — differences that make a difference in the lives of teachers, students, parents, and communities. It is not about why schools do not get results. It is about why schools get the results they do.

My intent is to help teachers and other school leaders better understand why their jobs are so hard — and what it will take to make their work more manageable and satisfying. It is also my intention to help local community leaders, especially school board members and state legislators, to better understand what is happening to their schools and why.

GUIDING QUESTIONS Three questions have guided my thinking in writing this book: Is it possible to pursue high standards and attach consequences to performance without resorting to the tools of bureaucracy? Is it possible to organize schools so that they refl ect concern for the unique circumstance of each child — without giving up the notion that all children should learn some of the same things at high levels? Can local school districts develop the capacity to sustain improvement efforts in response to national priorities as well as to local circumstances — without the active intervention of state and federal agencies? fpre.indd ix 3/4/09 7:04:24 PM x Preface I think that it is possible to answer these questions affi rmatively, but only when we shift our images of schools from those that grow out of bureaucratic assumptions to those that grow out of assumptions that schools can become learning organizations.

Once this shift is made, the principles on which schools are built will necessarily be quite different from those on which most schools and school districts are now based. The primary purpose of this book is to make the nature of these principles very clear and to show how they might be applied to create the new system of education America needs. For example, I argue that rather than viewing standards as a means of enforcing bureaucratic authority, standards might better be used as a source of direction for school and communities.
