9780205481378: The Principal: Creative Leadership for Excellence in Schools (6th Edition)

This text is organized around the ELCC Standards and provides a bridge from the theory of school administration to the practical problem solving in which school principals and other leaders engage.  The Principal is organized into four parts centered on the seven Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) Standards developed specifically for school leaders. Each of the four major parts of the book is framed with one or two of the Standards as its major theme.  Now in its sixth edition, this text continues to be based on the research indicating linkages between educational leadership and productive schools, especially in terms of outcomes for children. It supports the understanding that formal leadership in schools is a complex, multi-faceted task that requires continual learning and that effective school leaders must be strong educators focused on the central issues of learning, teaching, and school improvement.

The Principal...is a timely and realistically written text that links scholarship with practice quite effectively. This book is well written and the majority of students in my educational leadership classes for the past five years have had nothing but high praise for this text, which they hold in high esteem.”
