Review quote

'At this time when international interest in educational leadership and management has never been greater, it is great to see a book that collects some of the best thinking around current issues. Tony Bush, Les Bell and David Middlewood are very well situated to edit a book that draws together many strands to highlight the current and future impact of leadership on the core concern of learning and learners. I am sure that this book will be a popular choice with postgraduate students and practitioners alike' - Professor Carol Cardno, Unitec Institute of Technology, New Zealand Each chapter has its own substantial bibliography. Looks very useful for those in educational management. -- The Teacher Trainer Journalshow more
