Originally published in 1995. This book argues that, in order to fulfil its task of moving schools and colleges forward to meet the demands of the future, the management of education must be inspired by both value and vision, applied to the actual management of people and resources. Part 1 examines key critical issues that should guide principles of school and college management. Part 2 identifies key aspects of the management and leadership of people, including case studies of effective team leadership. Part 3 deals with the management of all educational resources to achieve improvement and success in schools and colleges.
