Governing at the Top: Building a Board-Superintendent Strategic Governing Team

Doug Eadie’s Governing at the Top  is both a powerful addition to the K-12 governance literature and a practical guidebook for school board members, superintendents, and senior administrators.  Opening with a crystal-clear, eminently practical definition of the work of governing that goes well-beyond the outdated notion of “policy making,” this exciting new book then takes a close look at the key elements involved in building the kind of rock-solid board-superintendent governing partnership that these changing, challenging times demand.  According to Dr. Dallas Dance, superintendent of the Baltimore County Public Schools, “Governing at the Top is chock-full of practical, tested wisdom that superintendents can put to work in partnering with their boards.”
