Boot camp? What experienced, well-educated leader would want a book with the title Boot Camp for Leaders to be visible in his or her office? Such a title must indicate the intended audience is aspiring leaders, right?

Not so! This book's intended audience is all school leaders: those in the classroom and those whose professional life’s mission is assisting those in the classroom. Then why the title? It is because most of us are novices at leading schools where continuous improvement is the cultural norm; a culture where all-time-bests are continually strived for, achieved, and celebrated is rare indeed.

Lee Jenkins wrote Improving Student Learning to describe how continuous improvement looks in the classroom. He also edited The Continuous Improvement series written by four classroom teachers: Ayres, Burgard, Carson, and Fauss. He then described in Permission to Forget the root causes of educational frustration – the issues that make continuous improvement so difficult. Now, Jenkins has collaborated with Lloyd and Caroline Roettger to write the leadership companion.

Leaders will learn how to create a culture of continuous improvement with administrators, teachers, support staff, parents, and students.
