The Best Leadership Lesson: Hope

In this TEDx Talk author Simon T. Bailey reminds us that the best school leaders invite students to hope. Bailey breaks down the research that became the basis for his book, co-authored by Marceta F. Reilly, Releasing Leadership Brilliance. He tells the story of how he and Reilly learned, from research and some of the best educational leaders, that hope predicts academic success and graduation rates better than test scores. Watch this TEDx video to learn how administrators across the country are revitalizing hope and success in some of the most historically unsuccessful schools and districts.
