Leadership in education
Part of the Centre for Educational Leadership and Management series
Leadership in Education deals with leadership in all sectors from primary to higher education.
The editors present an international perspective on the analysis of leadership theory and practice, with the integration of exemplars from different cultural settings.
The authors provide a wider range of conceptual perspectives on leadership.
Themes include: the efficacy of centralized versus distributed concepts of leadership; the contrast between competency and academic models of leadership development; the contradistinction between functionalist and democratic models of leadership.
These themes are developed in four sections: Conceptualization; Leadership development; Teachers as leaders; Leadership in practice.
