Authentic Educational Leadership in Schools

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, 2010 - Education - 634 pages
This text seeks to re-establish the place and the importance of a valuesbased, philosophically-underpinned, national educational provision, through which reason and integrity, intellect and morality, caring and sharing, are more highly valued as educational outcomes than are narrow academic achievements only, leading to ways and means for accruing power and material possessions. The text will be confronting to some in that it challenges the following: governments to re-conceive the purposes of education and of schooling; schools and their societies to more carefully evaluate their educational structures and processes; teachers to re-consider the breadth and assessment of curricular; and society in general to demand from politicians, suffi cient and appropriate economic and intellectual support to and for every school.
