In The Expert School Leader, the authors detail a new approach to identifying, analyzing, acquiring, and using specific competencies that are needed for effective and accountable school leadership. The investigations reported in this book identify ways in which leaders can improve their performance and, thus, help to meet the challenge of maintaining safety and rule enforcement.

This unique book uses a creative approach to formulate recommendations regarding competencies school leaders need in an era of accountability. Particularly innovative is the use of interviews with exemplars from other fields that represent various aspects of a school leader's role...Not only do the authors present pertinent recommendations for specific competencies school leaders should acquire, but also they confirm the relevance and feasibility of their recommendations with school practitioners...Finally, the authors skillfully portray that you cannot be an effective school leader without accountability and that there cannot be accountability without evaluation. -- Martha McCarthy, Chancellor's Professor, Indiana University
The Glasmans provide us with a delightful set of lenses to understand the complexity of the work of school leaders?and a vivid portrait of the competencies needed to assume the mantle of leadership..... -- Joseph Murphy, professor of education, Department of Leadership, Policy, and Organizations at the Peabody College, Vanderbilt University, and p
These days it would be easy to believe that school accountability concerns nothing more than student test scores. This wonderful book explains what accountability really means in teaching and other professions, describing vividly the ways in which professionals act on their commitments to support the well-being of their clients and society. Teachers, school leaders, policy makers, and concerned citizens should all read this book and think about what we really need and want our schools to do ... and how we can support educational accountability that, first and foremost, helps children learn. -- Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommon Professor, School of Education, Stanford University
I found the book's approach to be thought provoking and a good basis for reform of our professional development for teachers and administrators. * School Administrator *

The authors, Naftaly & Lynne Glasman, have written the book that we've all been waiting for. It treats, head on, the critical issue of school accountability: who's responsible in education for whom, where, and to what ends, both personal and public. We are all the wiser and stronger from this analysis. We see, as we're told, that accountability is affected by both substance and image, based on major competencies. We are all better off-yes, stronger-for having experienced this amazing book. Being wiser and more accountable can only benefit our schools, their staff, and most importantly, our children. -- Bruce S. Cooper, professor and vice chair, Division of Administration, Policy and Urban Education (APUE), at the Fordham University Graduate Scho, Ph.D., professor and vice chair, Division of Administration, Policy and Urban Education (APUE), at the Fordham University Graduate School of Education, New York City
