What will become of our public schools in this new era of leadership? The author traces the origins of this process, examines the implications, and considers where these changes might lead. This extremely timely volume: explores the direction of education policy and the ways in which both policymakers and educators can adapt and provide leadership in this new landscape; offers a concise, accessible summary of a multitude of specific programs and policies, helping us to think more systematically about the shifts in power relationships among education governance levels; presents an outline of actions that can be taken at the local, state, and national levels to help facilitate better working relationships and to help improve schools; and examines the new federal role and recent federal legislation, including the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. --Publisher description."@en ;
