"Overall, this book is worth reading regardless of crises like the COVID-19 pandemic, because remote learning is becoming a viable alternative to traditional instruction during times such as inclement weather or natural disasters, when students are unable to attend school physically. Each chapter includes workplace scenarios that school principals may encounter, which helps readers develop a sense of reality by immersing themselves in real workplace situations. "
