In this major research analysis, Richard Elmore explores the problems with the structure and leadership of public education, while explaining the dangers of public funding for private schools. He urges educators to study the schools whose leaders and best practice are succeeding in meeting high standards, including through the use of collaboration and distributed leadership. The report features successful efforts in districts where exemplary superintendents and principals are making it possible for teachers to offer excellent instruction.
