The Gatekeepers is a comprehensive review of many parts of a school system that resist change. For all stakeholders to embrace improvement, they need to know what habits, practices and indifference act as barriers to growth and change. This book reveals insiders insights into what gates exist, how to navigate around them, and why it is important to risk new ways of doing school.

Barbara Smith collaborated with the diverse group of educators to look at gatekeeping in education through many lenses. Smith celebrates a 40+ year career in education as both a practitioner and researcher. She has opened three schools, and as a principal, she piloted innovative practices in teaching and learning and staff development. Barbara J. Smith is passionate about removing barriers that limit innovation in schools.
