School leaders can play a pivotal role in creating a positive mindset toward math among teachers, students, and even parents. Our guests Marian Small and Doug Duff rationalize that individual teachers in schools may do wonderful things, schools do not change their culture unless the school leader is fully in. The pair, co-authors ofThe School Leader’s Guide to Building and Sustaining Math Success, offer an insightful guide to supporting successful math instruction on this episode of ASCD Learn Teach Lead Radio.
