Overview

Re-imagining Educational Leadership will challenge policy makers at all levels to re-imagine educational leadership. It will help reshape educational leadership in school systems around the world at a time when policymakers seem to be losing faith in what schools can accomplish.

Part A, 'Re-imagining the Self-Managing School', reports what has happened in schools that became self-managing in the 1990s. Author Brian Caldwell describes how best practice has far outstripped the initial vision.

Deeper exploration of the new image of the self-managing school led to the formulation in Part B, 'The New Enterprise Logic of Schools', the first element of which is 'the student is the most important unit of organisation - not the classroom, not the school, and not the system'.

Part C, 'Exhilarating Leadership' counters the negative headlines about leadership in schools that is too often portrayed as 'mission impossible' - Illustrations from schools that had been transformed or were on the way to transformation reveal that leadership can be exhilarating, even under the most challenging circumstances.

This book shares a genuine optimism that educational leadership is 'mission possible' at a time when many have doubt.
