College of Education
Anthony H. Normore, professor emeritus of graduate education, Antonia Issa Lahera, professor of school leadership in Graduate Education, and Julie Jhun, assistant professor of School Leadership in Graduate Education, recently published the chapter “When Leaders Grow, They Grow Others: Overcoming Immunity to Change” in the book “The School Leadership Survival Guide: What to do when things go wrong, how to learn from mistakes, and why you should prepare for the worst.” The book serves as a bridge between research and day-to-day school leadership, and is intended to help leaders and school communities improve in areas they routinely avoid, and is meant as a “go to” resource for principals, those who train and teach them, and scholars.
