Effective leadership skills are crucial for managing the varied agendas, profiles, and populations of today�s schools. Daresh focuses on leadership and how foundational theories and models can be applied to supervisory activities in schools. The section, �Supervision as Social Action,� includes discussions of critical theory, or critical pedagogy, and postmodern thought. In addition, Daresh reviews recent research concerning cognitive development theories of leadership�looking at how leaders think rather than at what leaders do. This outstanding text, with its well-organized, easy-to-comprehend approach, practical end-of-chapter activities, and thought-provoking case studies, guides readers in becoming educational leaders of the twenty-first century�in a climate where a broad vision is a necessity and professional development is an ongoing activity.
