Decision Making Tools | Leadership | School Management
Edited by Alan M. Blankstein, Paul D. Houston, and Robert W. Cole, this seventh volume in the series offers key concepts and strategies for data-enhanced decision making in school leadership practice.
With contributions from Jesse Rodriguez, Lorna M. Earl, Steven Katz, Eileen Depka, Kay Burke, and other experts, Data-Enhanced Leadership combines research, practice, and innovative thinking into a single compact volume of essential reading for all educational leaders.
“Data have enormous power to improve the quality of decisions, but leaders are the ones who drive decision making in schools. Data are tools for leaders. This volume is akin to lifting the hood of your car to gain a more complete understanding of how it runs, and how it can be fine-tuned to run even better.”
"A great resource for district leaders for understanding that data should not be used to place blame or grant glory, but rather should be applied as a tool, to constantly focus on systemwide improvement."
