Turnaround schools require empowered teachers to discover their leadership wand. Based on a case study conducted on BART Charter School, this article highlights five steps for leaders who wish to empower their teachers and allow them to lead their schools to success: 1) Let your people know; 2) Nominate the fittest, 3) Connect teachers to a prestige model, 4) constantly ask for valid data and 5) share success and responsibility. Conceptual explanations and practical examples describe each step in a chain of turnaround events in a successful turnaround school.
