The “Why Not? Challenge

Dr. Jacqueline Sanderlin is an accomplished school principal, professor, and speaker. Her “Why Not?” attitude has led to dramatic improvements in some of Southern California’s toughest schools. In The “Why Not?” Challenge, Dr. Sanderlin inspires readers to mobilize their communities towards engagement in schools, provides practical, hands-on suggestions to set attainable goals, and helps educators turn those goals into reality through ongoing, sustained community partnerships.

It takes a village to build and run successful schools-and, increasingly, schools can’t thrive without outside funding. When families, communities, and schools work together, students are more successful and the entire community benefits.
