Understanding Educational Leadership: People, Power And Culture: People, Power and Culture
Improve Your Educational System
No matter what level you are—a senior manager to classroom teacher—this book shows you how you can help build learning communities through collaborating and negotiating with your colleagues, students and students’ parents and carers, as well as with external agencies and local communities, to sustain and develop the enjoyment of successful learning among the members of a school. It looks at how positive cultures can be constructed that support inclusive and exciting teaching, enthusiastic teachers and engaged students, parents and careers.
Drawing on research, this comprehensive book examines topics such as the nature of leadership, especially distributed and teacher leadership; the politics of education management; the construction of inclusive cultures in schools; school improvement; and the construction of collaborative and inclusive work groups. It uses a range of critical perspectives to examine processes of change and the relationships of people in school communities to each other and to their social, economic and policy contexts. It argues that it is essential to develop inclusive education in order to promote student engagement, social justice and equity within formal education.
Understanding Educational Leadership is key reading for you, whether you're a teacher, headteacher, school leaders, policy makers, Education students and practitioner who has an interest in improving schooling.
