MEDIA REVIEWS
`Strategic Leadership and Educational Improvement contains essays that will be invaluable to those seeking succinct guides to the subtle elements of school improvement' - Tim Brighouse, Times Educational Supplement

'Severely practical, in that they are directed towards practitioners who are serious about their careers and are seeking structured professional development, yet grounded in cutting-edge theory and research, these 'readers' or collections of articles, represent excellent value-for-money and can be recommended to those who with to have an authoritative source from which to update their knowledge in a particular filed yet have not the time to cover the complete corpus of core literature.' - Educational Research


The editors have managed to balance powerful authors in an impressive survey of current thinking about education. -- School Leadership & Management, February 2004
