"The authors clearly illustrate their premises, provide detailed descriptions of their reform procedures, and heroically tackle many facets which are often unaddressed in the educational literature."
Cathy A. Patterson, Teacher and Former Assistant Principal
Evergreen Elementary School, Walnut, CA
"I haven’t the slightest hesitation in recommending support for any venture with which Bill Preble is associated. He is a man who challenges conventional wisdom and long may he remain so. Read the book. You will discover what transforming school climate and learning really means and how essential it is to support Bill’s vision.”
Michael Morgan, Former CEO
The Froebel Educational Institute, London, UK
"Preble and Gordon get it that schools are ecological habitats. They recognize students, and everyone in the school environment, as essential to maintaining the school as a dynamic and healthy system. This book - and the student-led, collaborative action research it describes - is an essential waypoint to making any school a humane, effective and sustainable habitat for its students, teachers, and staff."
Tom Julius, Director of Academic Assessment
Antioch University New England, Keene, NH
"This is a practical book, it is a resource that teachers and administrators will want to use throughout their careers."
Lyne Ssebikindu, Assistant Principal
Crump Elementary School, Memphis, TN
"The topic is very current and the need is great. This will become a great handbook for educators on how to transform school climate."
Gary L. Willhite, Professor
University of Wisconsin La Crosse
"The book has a real value. Having gone through a very similar experience of focusing on school climate as a means of improving student learning, I found the points made here to be valid. The authors’ Five-Step process identifies key components. Using data to monitor the results, and committing to the long-haul to achieve the goals are two important pieces in this process. The authors demonstrate that well."
Martin J. Hudacs, Superintendent
Solanco School District, Quarryville, PA
"Each chapter contains real-life scenarios; real student, parent, and educator voices; clearly detailed strategies; and pitfalls to avoid. The conclusions are simple, yet powerful. The book’s premise is backed by many years of research."
Janie L. Nusser, Superintendent of Schools
South Seneca Central School District, Ovid, NY
