This is a thought-provoking volume whose eclectic, authoritative essays examine the role of the principal as instructional leader, as the person charged with the responsibility of making sense of issues affecting education, and making certain these issues are resolved in the best interests of the students. The Principal as Leader examines the multitude of issues involved in present-day education--the issue of "leadership" and all that it entails, along with decentralized decision-making, curriculum restructuring, human resource development, "politics", and the many legal issues today's schools face. Plus, it provides practical ways for principals to help teachers, parents, and staff make sense of conflicting concerns and resolve them. The contributions by well-known authorities in the field of education all come to the same conclusion: That the role of the principal in schools can no longer be simply that of "minding the store"...that today's principals, to be truly effective, must be catalysts in the delivery of an excellent instructional program...the creative leaders, and the persons who can "get things done".
