One of the greatest strengths of Eight Keys To an Extraordinary Board-Superintendent Partnership is its practicality....Doug draws on 25 years of hands-on experience in providing advice and counsel that you can put to good use right now in your district....It serves as a perfect companion piece to The Board-Savvy Superintendent, and I recommend it to you without reservation. -- John R.
