WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK ...Harold Kwalwasser


"I wanted to describe to educators what their most successful colleagues have done to build a 21st-century district. I also wanted parents and community leaders to know that change is possible, and, even more importantly, their support is essential to sustain the drive down the invariably challenging road to a new vision for education."


- Harold Kwalwasser, AASA member and principal consultant of Renewing Our Schools, Washington, D.C., on writing RENEWAL: REMAKING AMERICA'S SCHOOLS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY (R+L Education, 2012)
