Leondard C Burrello et al address school change by juxtaposing Fritz's structural dynamics theory against K-12 school practice, providing steps to address structural tensions within schools to create a unified school vision, to develop professional learning communities and distributive leadership, to use data to drive decision making, and to contextualize the process by showing it in practice and through the lives of other school leaders.
