Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zapp! In Education Zapp! In Education is a different but very effective book about leadership and empowerment in education. It is a book for superintendents, principals and teachers. The author describes the book as a fable about a make-believe school, Normal Middle School in Normalburg, USA, run by Principal Joe Mode. Everything was normal at Normal. School Board folks did the thinking. Principals did the talking. Teachers did the doing and students did whatever they were told to do- most of the time. The principal leads you on a voyage of discovery through an interesting format as he finds out about Zapp! the giving of power and Sapp, the taking of power. The book lays out an excellent model of leadership theory with good insights in a very easy read that we can all relate to.
