What kinds of school leadership are required to meet the challenges of good schooling in a knowledge society?
Part of the Educational Leadership Dialogue series, Learning for Leadership explores how school principals can initiate and maintain programs and practices to develop the leadership potential of teachers in their school at different levels (within schools, teacher leadership, co-leadership of school-to-school networks).
Presenting a theory and case study format, it explains the theory behind the concept of educational leadership and then tells the story of a school much admired for its leadership development.
Part I focuses on a number of issues in the field of school leadership (changing context, who gets to lead and how, implications etc.) whilst Part II identifies conditions under which learning for student-focused leadership can be facilitated and strengthened at an individual school level.
