“Will Parker makes a powerful case for school efficacy. He highlights the power of messaging, self-determination, and the need to cultivate a positive culture for a school’s most important stakeholders. After reading this book, you will feel enlightened, energized, and empowered.”

Anthony Muhammad, educational consultant and author

“This book is a practical how-to guide with immediately implementable ideas and practices.”

Laura Jennaro, principal, Milton Middle School, Wisconsin

“By explaining what to do and how to do it, Messaging Matters becomes an important manual for school leaders to sharpen and extend their communication skills.”

Josh Arnold, seventh-grade civics teacher, Walker Middle Magnet School, Florida

“I agree with Parker: Messaging matters. As a leader, if you want to turn your community members into 'raving fans' of your school’s success, you need to control the narrative. What you focus on will become your reality. Spend time with teachers and students in their learning environment, and you will be rewarded with good news to share with others about your school community.”

Payton Hobbs, head of lower school at Ravenscroft School, North Carolina

“If you are an educator, then this book is a must-read! Messaging Matters provides practical notions and step-by-step models to strengthen communication and build a positive culture with your students, parents, and community. And you can implement them almost immediately.”

Wendy Adams, professional school counselor, Texas, for Middleweb
