Welcome to the Better Leaders Better Schools podcast.  This is a weekly show for ruckus makers -- What is a ruckus maker?  A leader who has found freedom from the status quo. A leader looking to escape the old routine. A leader who never, ever gives up.

How do you create a school-wide change that impacts the students, teachers, staff and community….without fundraising?  Be proactive like Adam Drummond.

Adam Drummond created an innovative school-wide “economy” where students applied for jobs, were paid a “salary” and couly buy items and experiences.

In this episode of Better Leaders Better Schools, Dr. Drummond shares the mindset behind this innovative economy and his lessons on transforming the entire culture of school for the positive.
