This book is about the improvement of school leadership accountability. The demands for it have been mounting. The responses to it have been at best vague and often unacceptable. At stake may be the future of society that so heavily depends on how those who are today's school children would act accountably in decades to come. Three working assumptions guide this book: school leaders are expected to use the powers bestowed upon them to respond to demands placed on them and also to be accountable for their actions; to respond best to the demands for accountability, school leaders need to identify specific challenges that they must face and meet; and, in addition to the acquisition of fundamental knowledge and skills needed for the general practice of school leadership, school leaders must master specialized competencies to pursue each specific challenge. Only in this way can they become fully accountable. This book is written for school leadership trainees, their professors, supervisors and coaches, assistant principals, principals in their initial years, experienced principals who wish to reflect on, rejuvenate as well as to mentor younger colleagues and school district professionals. It can also be of use to lay leaders who are concerned with the improvement of accountability for our school leaders.
