Research and Educational Leadership will prove to be an invaluable tool in re-thinking the way research is conducted in educational leadership and how public and private funding agencies should view research proposals which have potential to improve leadership practices in schools. The text will also become a key resource in teaching researchers to think more deeply about school leadership as they engage in dissertation research.
