Description

The Handbook of Research on the Education of School Leaders brings together empirical research on leadership preparation and development to provide a comprehensive overview and synthesis of what we know about preparing school leaders today. With contributions from the field’s foremost scholars, this new edition investigates the methodological foundations of leadership preparation research, reviews the pedagogical and curricular features of preparation programs, and presents valuable insights into the demographic, economic, and political factors affecting school leaders. This volume both mirrors the first edition’s macro-level approach to leadership preparation and presents the most up-to-date research in the field. Updates to this edition cover recent state and federal government efforts to improve leadership in education, new challenges for the field, and significant gaps and critical questions for framing, researching, evaluating, and improving the education of school leaders. Sponsored by the University Council of Educational Administration (UCEA), this handbook is an essential resource for students and scholars of educational leadership, as well as practitioners, policymakers, and other educators interested in professional leadership.

Reviews

"A landmark book. The highest quality and most comprehensive resource on the education of school leaders available."

Joseph Murphy Frank W. Mayborn Chair of Education and Associate Dean, Peabody College of Education, Vanderbilt University

"The Handbook of Research on the Education of School Leaders 2nd edition is the source book to use for designing a leadership curriculum for the future. As K-12 schools face increased pressure to improve student outcomes, the educational leadership skill set is changing to meet the demands of an instructionally focused curriculum. This book is a must have for understanding how best to train school leaders to lead instructionally focused schools based upon ‘the most up-to-date research on the field.’ "

James E. Berry, Professor of Educational Administration, Eastern Michigan University and Executive Director, National Council of Professors of Educational Administration
