The issues principals face today, and the decisions they have to routinely make regarding their practice, are presented in this widely popular text. Built on a structural foundation of concepts from some of the greatest educational leaders, the book focuses on creating outstanding schools by treating leadership as a moral craft advocating imagination, creativity, and ethical integrity. Here, theory, practice, and research combine to present a sound picture of the roles and functions of today’s school leaders. Specifically, it describes where and how principals spend their time, standards that inform their behavior, and competencies they need to master in order to be effective. The book also looks at the complex nature of the work place; compares traditional management with leadership practices and offers the reader a choice between the two, while suggesting that what is needed in today’s schools is a balance between the two.
