Based on the book Transforming
School Culture: How to Overcome Staff Division, Second Edition
by Anthony
Muhammad, this unscripted video workshop explores a powerful framework for
understanding school culture and turning toxic cultures into healthy ones. This
inspiring video draws on Muhammad’s study of thirty-four US public schools,
contending that in order to transform school culture, we must examine and
understand educators’ motivation for hanging on to paradigms that are contrary
to those of their school or district. In the video, Muhammad describes the
underlying tensions that impact culture among four different groups of
educators in a school.

  1. The Believers are committed to each student’s
    learning and operate under the assumption that their efforts can make an
    enormous difference in that learning.

  2. The Tweeners are typically new to a school
    and attempt to learn its prevailing culture.

  3. The Survivors feel overwhelmed by the stress
    and demands of the profession, and their primary goal is to make it through the
    day, the week and the year.

  4. The Fundamentalists want to preserve the
    status quo.

In this video workshop, participants will view real leader and
teacher interviews and implementation meetings and discover how Garnet Valley
School District, in Delaware County Pennsylvania, used the Transforming School Culture framework to establish a healthy school
