Educational Leadership: The Moral Art
This book shows that educational leadership is not a science but a philosophical activity, a moral art. The central problem of administration is defined as value conflict, and Hodgkinson presents an analysis and theory of value and of conflict resolution. He examines what it means to be a leader and how to cope with the pressures of organizational life. Additionally, he deals with leadership as a human and humane process engaging consciousness and will in a context of values and ethics.
