Do children and adults with disabilities enrich our lives? Far more than most people imagine. Our Better Angels is a testament to the value of individuals with disabilities and the value that society could derive from being more welcoming to and inclusive of them. The reward is the powerful humanizing influence that they can have on others—even some of the most hardened people among us. Colorful, real-life examples illustrate how a disability can be a valuable human attribute, a powerful source of compassion from which everyone can benefit. What are the challenges that face us as we strive for a more inclusive society? What are the values that should guide us in our efforts? Smith approaches these questions by examining his own experience and other unique perspectives: • Meet the children and adults with disabilities who have touched his own life • Consider what science—and pseudoscience—has said about disability • View disability through the lens of history and literature The result is a compelling case for understanding and celebrating human diversity. Smith asks us to summon the "better angels" of our character and affirm our commitment to a society based on equality and democracy.

Foreword by Richard W. Riley, Former U.S. Secretary of Education Praise for the first edition: "Inspirational! This book redefines what leadership is and how it should be practiced in schools. Lively, personal, emotional at times, and in the end, uplifting." Thomas J. Sergiovanni, Lillian Radford Professor of Education Trinity University, San Antonio, TX Take an introspective, reflective journey into yourself--the first step toward becoming a moral, ethical leader! Building upon his successful first edition, noted author and speaker, Leonard O. Pellicer, takes the reader on a deeply emotional and touching journey to the human side of leadership. While discussing the importance of "serving" others, Caring Enough to Lead, Second Edition is more than a "how to" manual. It is a collection of ideas and understandings illustrating vital concepts of leadership through a series of questions, short vignettes, selected quotations, and personal stories. Reflective pieces at the end of each chapter provide powerful opportunities to assess what it truly means to be a leader. Several critical questions will help you determine for yourself: Why it's better to know some of the questions rather than all the answers What it means to be a leader What you really care about What it means to be responsible Why you are a professional educator If you care enough to do the "little things" How a school can be transformed by your leadership Whether you are an administrator, principal, teacher, counselor, or board member, this second edition is for those of you who feel a deep responsibility to provide caring and effective leadership in whatever role you may find yourself serving.
