Book Review
Transforming School Culture: How to Overcome Staff Division
Author: Anthony Muhammad
Transforming School Culture: How to Overcome Staff Division emphasizes the
importance of establishing a school culture that empowers all parties to overcome the
difficult obstacles necessary to transform the culture from a toxic environment to a positive
environment. The author classifies the teachers of a school in four categories: Believers,
Tweeners, Survivors, and Fundamentalists. Strategies are provided to support each of the
groups in becoming believers and recommends strategies to transform believers into
recruiters. The book encourages administrators to reflect on the schools past performance
in order to motivate all vested parties involved to acknowledge where the school has been
and where the school needs to be.

The leader of the school needs to be prepared to address any form of staff division and
create unity to achieve student learning. In addition to the technical and structural changes
that a leader has to make, the most important change is the human element. Change for the
advancement of any organization is achieved by human growth and success. School leaders
need to focus on developing a systematic and school wide focus on learning, celebrating the
success of all stakeholders, and creating systems for Tweeners. The author expresses the
importance of developing tweeners, new teachers. Teacher development is essential in the
transformation of a school culture. Another important element that is crucial to the success
of transforming a school culture is the importance of celebrating achievements regularly.
An administrator needs to focus on the essential components that nurture and transform a
school culture that will ultimately impact student learning.
