I was principal of one of the schools on this list as we designed our turnaround. Both the promises and threats attached to that project were powerful. Several posts here reflect on that process from the inside. Looking at the promise in pros and cons, attempts to treat people like professionals despite the threat of imminent transfer, establishing student-centered justice, even interviewing in the first place. I'm also sharing documents that were actually used in turnaround leadership. Are you connected to turnaround or know someone who is? How do your experiences compare?
