'This book skilfully integrates both theory and research with practical ideas and approaches around effective school leadership practice.
While it covers a wide range of key and topical educational leadership issues, it does so with a refreshing depth of analysis, offering perceptive insights closely tied to highly relevant research. In particular, it deepens our understanding of the symbiotic nature of the relationship between effective school leadership and learning and the factors that are essential for success.
There is a very real challenge in trying to produce an educational leadership text that meets the varied and differing needs of students, academics and practitioners in the field. That this book does so with consummate skill is testimony to the expertise of Mark Brundrett and his team of highly experienced contributors'
- Graham Thomson, Director, Scottish Centre for Studies in School Administration, University of Edinburgh
'This book provides a clear conceptual framework for intelligent school leaders to draw upon and critically reflect on some of the important issues facing them in the twenty first century. The very best chapters (for example, those by John West-Burnham, Brent and Barbara Davies, Megan Crawford) enable the reader to relate the theoretical underpinning of research into educational leadership and management to their own practice, present and future. Every school leader who cares deeply about the best provision for their pupils and students will gain something from reflection upon such chapters and their significance for themselves and the leaders that come after them'
