"All chapters are written brilliantly...the summaries are brief, well-written and concise...the use of cases and vignettes will be very beneficial to students and professors who are interested in studying leadership at a systems level within public educational organizations."
Anthony H. Normore, Florida International University
This book immerses prospective superintendents and other executive administrators in the realities of practice and the specific leadership skills that create effective schools. Research based coverage of the foundations, issues, principles and responsibilities of executive leaders in educational administration and management are presented within the three dimensions of: The Nature of Executive Leadership, Forces That Influence and Shape Executive Leadership, and the Responsibilities of Executive Leaders. This text encourages leaders to think beyond management and consider how to lead and affect school culture, student achievement, and organizational productivity. Case studies and critical incidents as well as ample pedagogical elements encourage readers to take an active, decision-making role. Concepts throughout the text correlate closely to ISLLC standards.
