Statistics Made Simple for School Leaders is a statistics book unlike others that I’ve encountered. It’s conceptually focused but also mathematically rigorous, explaining in clear, jargon-free language the advantages and limitations of different statistical tests. It doesn’t go into lots of mathematical detail; instead, the authors focus on the logic and conceptual principles at work. I highly recommend this book to any school administrator who wants to make data-informed decisions within their school or district.— Geoff Ruth, Assistant Head for Instruction, Urban School of San Francisco
