Achieving Teacher and Principal Excellence: A Guidebook for Donors
Andrew J. Rotherham
Wealthy individuals who lose count of their houses may well wonder: What is the most efficient way for my millions to boost teacher and principal quality in the public schools? This book is the Philanthropy Roundtable's answer. Author Andrew Rotherham believes that hiring savvy administrators and teachers is the smartest way to leaven American educational worth. "Research has convincingly shown," he writes, "what parents and educators have long suspected: teachers matter more to student learning than anything else schools do." Thus, he presents a comprehensive overview of the who, what, where, why, and how of developing the human capital of public schools--e.g., the work of Jon Schnur of New Leaders for New Schools, Teach for America, the Gates Foundation, etc. Whether you're Uncle Pennybags, or staff his foundation, or are simply interested in philanthropic efforts to improve American academics, this book is worth a read.
