Quandaries of the Small District Superintendency

Quandaries of the Small-District Superintendency teaches superintendents and superintendents-in-training how to develop critical frameworks for thinking through and addressing the problems and practices superintendents encounter daily. Focused on the particular needs of superintendents of districts of fewer than ten thousand students, the chapters invite students to examine the everyday practices of school leaders from different perspectives and to form a detailed and practical understanding of administration and leadership. The book draws equally on education administration and management practices and on social and educational theory, with the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium standards for school leadership framing the whole in order to address all key aspects of superintendency. A thought-provoking consideration of the unsolvable quandaries every small-district superintendent faces, Quandaries of the Small-District Superintendency is a valuable touchstone for the issues that will be faced by current and future leaders alike.

Quandaries of School Leadership

This book provides insights into the everyday practices of school leaders as told through the real-life stories of principals. The editors and their contributors blend practice with theory, helping aspiring leaders to discover that school leadership is not simply putting prescribed solutions into action, but a constant encounter with quandaries that demand thinking, responding, and adjusting to the situations at hand. Readers build their capacities to view quandaries from multiple lenses, consider a variety of responses, and draw conclusions based on perspectives that may vary from those initially identified. The chapter authors encourage a sharper self-awareness of what scholars value and envision about education, encouraging them to think about how to navigate decision-making through a variety of theoretical frameworks and practices while balancing their own leadership platform development.

The Nature of School Leadership

This book explores school leadership through a cross-cultural comparative lens, drawing on data from 16 countries located on five continents. The book gives a voice to both primary and secondary school principals, who discuss the nature of their work and explain their understanding of school leadership, strategies used to support their leadership, and how they 'do leadership' in a time of unprecedented change. The book highlights a number of important elements in school leadership: that it is personal and internally-motivated; change oriented and entrepreneurial; dependent on the qualities and motivations of school teachers; dependent on environmental factors related to economy, geography, political stability; heavily influenced by policies within and outside the field of education; and dependent on partnerships within and outside education. The book provides an authoritative cross-cultural account of what school leaders regard as school leadership. It will be essential reading for students, researchers and policy-makers in the fields of educational leadership and management, in particular those with an interest in comparative and international research, school leadership, and education policy.
