This chapter presents a complex, real-life, accessible case study in expecting the best to provoke and stimulate conversation around practical problems an alternative solutions that confront educational leaders today. These cases cover a wide range of topics, including: teacher evaluations, educational reforms, school safety, cultural differences, undocumented students, and social media. Each case study has three alternative responses written by experienced educational administrators and academics. The respondents were asked to identify the primary problem, along with secondary problems, and to provide a strategy that will address the problems identified. The chapter explains that in every school, there are always students that are overlooked because they are not in the spotlight. They are not discipline problems and they are not star athletes. It is critical to revamp the peer leadership program at the high school with an effort to involve some of the school junior and senior student leadership with the underclassmen.
