Abstract:

"A pupil's academic, technical and social capacity will set the limits to their success or failure. Therefore, educational outcomes and well-being for young people across emerging and developed economies and the crucial role of education and leaders of education has never been more important. Schools are under pressure to think more clearly about their place in children's lives, their relationship with civic institutions and their contribution to community. The pressure translates into a requirement for high quality learning in classrooms and more besides. The processes inside schools, the organisation of school systems and the relationship between communities and educators are critical elements in a complex mix that must balance correctly if it is to benefit school children properly. Using the term "high leverage leadership" to describe leadership that is associated with higher outcomes than would normally be found in similar contexts, this timely book: - Provides an overview of the development of educational leadership research - demonstrates how successful educational leaders apply contextual, social and professional expertise to the three distinctive leadership tasks of navigation, management and partnership - offers an insight into the complexity of the educational leadership and practices of teachers who, against the odds, produce high outcomes for young people - validates the idea that a renovation of educational leadership is necessary to maximise educational outcomes. High Leverage Leadership will be an indispensible text for school leaders, public sector officers, post-graduate students and researchers in leadership, policy, school improvement and educational change"--Provided by publisher.
