Who should be at the table?On Schools' Commitments to Change:One thing that the SERP's Internal Coherence work emphasizes is that school change is a developmental process rather than a turnaround event. Your thoughts on that idea?On Schools' Commitments to Change:If you were to walk into a school for a first time and get a sense that there is a high level of internal coherence, what might you be seeing and hearing? What gives you that impression?On Schools' Commitments to Change:Please tell us what the phrase "exercise of agency" means.


On Leadership:Please describe some of your own work on leadership.
