Reading List

I have the opportunity to present at conferences all over the world. One part of my job that is very important to be successful is to read constantly. I try to keep up on what is happening in education, especially in the K-12 sector. I use the information and inspiration from my readings to help me prepare for presentations to help my audiences think about the important issues facing their schools. I tend to talk about books and authors during most of these presentations and I am consistently asked for a ‘reading list’. The list below is in no particular order. I believe that every book on this list is well worth reading and will help the leaders of our schools think about the successful and relevant future of our schools. I know that many of you have read many of these books and probably many that are not listed. Let me know what you’re reading that has been inspiring.

Happy Reading!
