Jill Blackmore here argues that the particular approaches previously taken by feminist theory towards educational leadership require reviewing in the light of the radical restructuring of educational systems seen in the late-1990s. She asserts that new forms of managerialism, while seemingly sympathetic to so called female styles of leadership, have produced a value shift which is troubling for many (but not all) women in leadership.

About the Author:

Jill Blackmore is an Associate Professor in the School of Social and Cultural Studies in the Faculty of Education, Deakin University. She taught in state secondary schools for 14 years and currently teaches postgraduate courses in educational administration and policy to distance learning students. Her main interests are in feminist approaches to administrative and organizational theory, leadership, educational restructuring, organizational change and teachers' work, and all their policy implications. She has published widely in various international and professional journals in the field of administration, policy, history and feminist studies. Recent publications include co-editorship (with Jane Kenway) of Gender Matters in Educational Administration and Policy: A feminist introduction (Falmer, 1993); Answering Back: girls, boys, education and feminism (co-authored with Jane Kenway, Sue Willis and Leonie Rennie) Routledge, 1998.

Review:

"It presents a wide-ranging, coherent and, I believe, persuasive argument in favour of an alternative to the learning experiences currently offered in most universities." - Journal of Vocational Education & Training "I commend this book particularly strongly to those who are, at the time of writing, in the early stages of setting up the new quality assurance agency for higher education...Harvey & Knight offer principled optimism, and practical ways forward. I hope they will be heard, and their ideas developed and acted on." - Studies in Higher Education "Higher education policy makers should be especially interested in this book." - Teaching in Higher Education

Book Description OPEN UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1999. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.tFeminism as a social movement has historically been a force for educational change. However, in this book Jill Blackmore argues that the particular approaches taken by feminist theory towards educational leadership now require reviewing in the light of the radical restructuring of educational systems. This is because new forms of managerialism, while seemingly sympathetic to so called female styles of leadership , have produced a value shift which is troubling for many (but not all) women in leadership. The book provides an historical overview of educational management and the masculinist models embedded in leadership and organizational processes, an analysis of equal opportunities policies and their different strategic approaches and effects, presents new research on how educational restructuring has produced specific dilemmas for women in educational leadership and finally offers a series of issues and principles which are premised upon centralised decentralisation and market liberalism. While situated in Australia the book will be of interest to both educational practitioners and policymakers as well as postgraduate students and academics in the field of administration, management and policy in all education systems.
