    One thought on “Student-Centered Leadership”

    1. This title was the subject of a year-long administrative professional development. I found the material to be very timely. As I write this review, the book is somewhat disjointed because I have read it over the course of the entire school year. I think I would have gained more out of it if I had read it more quickly rather than piecemeal. That being said, Robinson's ideas are presented clearly and definitely have a place in today's school atmosphere.

    2. This is a must-read for any political leader or educator who wants to understand which leadership practices actually advance student achievement. Dr. Robinson is smart, articulate, and a respected expert whose work deserves much more visibility in the current discussions on improving public education.

    3. 'When the students feel that teachers know and care about them, they feel more connected to the school, and their emotional engagement provides a platform from which teachers can more readily foster their cognitive engagement with tough intellectual work'.(Viviane Robinson - Student Centered Leadership)

    4. Wish I was related! Great book and I cannot wait to fully implement many of the things she shares in this book.
