Description

“Why do I lead?” With this deceptively simple question,
best-selling author Baruti K. Kafele begins a powerful examination of what it
takes to make a school community achieve the greatest success in the classroom
and beyond. 


In The Principal 50:
Critical Leadership Questions for Inspiring Schoolwide Excellence
, Kafele,
a veteran school administrator guides motivated school leaders through 50
self-reflection exercises designed to yield a deeper understanding of the
meaning behind the work that they do. Along with many other insights, this book
shows how best to:



  • inspire
    and motivate students, teachers and other school staff to approach their work
    with vigour and purpose

  • ensure
    that all students, regardless of colour, creed or origin, are valued and
    represented in the school culture

  • focus
    mission and vision statements to address students’ most critical needs and
    integrate shared values and objectives into the fabric of the school

  • engage
    parents and other community members so that they feel a stake in the school’s
    success.


Brimming with passion, written from the heart and informed by
hard-earned experience, this transformative book is essential reading for
principals and other building-level administrators determined to reinvigorate
their practice, revitalise their staff and – most importantly – guarantee the
strongest outcomes for students.
