About the Author:

Robert G. Owens began his professional career as the teaching principal of a three-room school. After serving as principal for eighteen years in a variety of school environments, he became a university professor. His research and service have always focused on, and been centered in, the practice of improving the organizational effectiveness of schools.

 

Thomas C. Valesky began his career in education serving as teacher, high school counselor, elementary principal, and superintendent — both in the United States and abroad. He is currently program leader and professor for the Educational Leadership program at Florida Gulf Coast University. His work has resulted in numerous journal publications and the co-authorship of two books, Training for Quality School-based Decision Making (Rowman & Littlefield, 2003) and Challenge to change: The Memphis experience with school-based decision making (National Education Association, 1994).
