Here is a collection of case studies that provide a variety of situations in managing or working with marginal employees in a school system. Managing Marginal School Employees will serve as a primary or companion text for administrator candidates or current administrators that include dilemmas for the student to think about, discuss, and solve. The authors have correlated the topics within this book to the national standards in educational leadership and provide a realistic sampling of the various problems that administrators encounter each day. Included are the problem, case questions, suggested activities, and, following each case, is a set of reflective questions for each chapter. Managing Marginal School Employees is most suitable for graduate courses in the field of educational leadership.

Managing Marginal School Employees: Applying Standards-Based Employment Measures is a must-read for today's students preparing to be future leaders. These realistic and pragmatic cases provide students with the opportunity to discuss, analyze, and resolve personnel-related issues. Ethical decision-making and honed interpersonal skills are crucial for leaders to create and sustain an educational culture of trust, competence, and caring. I only wish I had been afforded the opportunity to read and discuss these cases before I became a school administrator. This book should be viewed as central to all leadership preparation programs' connection of theory to practice. -- Michele Acker-Hocevar, associate professor of educational leadership, Florida Atlantic University
Many educational leadership programs have used case studies for years, but what separates those in Managing Marginal School Employees from the pack are that they are: 1) more inclusive of all employees with true-to-life situations and 2) grounded in ELCC standards that drive the acquisition of knowledge, dispositions, and performance skills required for exemplary leadership so needed in this era of accountability. This book is a must for any professional library shelf in today's educational leadership programs! -- Shelly Albritton, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Graduate School of Management, Leadership and Administration at the University of Central Arkansas
Finally a realistic and on-target book to help prepare educational leaders! There is an excellent variety of situations provided in this book. -- Julie Janssen, principal, St. Petersburg (Fla.) High School
The fictionalized cases guide readers through the process of analyzing a situation, identifying possible courses of action, and weighing the potential consequences of each. * Reference and Research Book News *
The book makes a worthy attempt to enrich the development of aspiring and early career school leaders who will be facing tough personnel problems throughout their careers. * School Administrator, June 2007 *
This is an outstanding book for future school leaders as they matriculate through their program of study. What excited me the that it is loaded with numerous realistic problems and issues that school leaders will have to confront daily. I found both the stated 'case questions' and accompanying 'related activities' to be most thoughtful and reflective opportunities for pre-service leaders to explore issues that are correlated with the existing national standards for educational leaders. Bravo to the authors for developing this quality and practical resource for students and current practitioners. -- Jack Klotz, associate professor of school management, leadership, and administration at the University of Central Arkansas
