Book Description

This book demonstrates how the school principal’s consideration of culture and climate of the school can significantly improve and sustain student achievement over time. Highlighting an innovative approach to organizational health and student achievement, this volume uses inferential statistical data analysis to quantify the way school leaders can strategically interact within school culture and systems to improve student achievement. A cutting-edge analysis of the importance of school climate, this book draws on current research from the Organizational Health Inventory diagnostic framework to provide data-based conceptual models of the relation between culture and leadership.
