The topic of school effectiveness has attracted international interest as school systems worldwide have become subject to wide-ranging reform programs. This book links together, for the first time, the work of school effectiveness researchers with studies of school-based management in order to develop understanding of the relationships and connections between them.
New writing from a range of internationally respected experts--from Australia, Canada, the United States and Britain--describe and analyze how effective principals and teachers perceive educational change; how a sense of values, vision and school culture can improve leadership; and ways in which delegating financial management to schools may improve the quality of teaching, learning and the curriculum. Finally, suggestions are offered on future directions for educational administration, school effectiveness and school improvement as fields of study and research.
Contributors: Ray Bolam, Brian Caldwell, Glenda Campbell-Evans, Judith Chapman, Peter Cuttance, Clive Dimmock, Shirley Hord, Brian Knight, Ken Leithwood, Joe Murphy, David Reynolds,
