Current Issues in School Leadership examines controversies about, and affecting, school practices. Focusing on two essential questions—what is important to today's school leaders? and what is interfering with schooling processes?—it includes chapters by a broad range of authors, with expertise on their specific topic. The text is organized in three sections:
*Social and Political Issues;
*Curriculum and Learning Issues; and
*Organization and Management Issues.

The goal of this text—designed for school leadership, educational administration, and foundations of education courses—is to challenge readers to think carefully and critically about each of the issues presented, leading to positive action and leadership.
