This one-of-a-kind book takes readers beyond thinking about school improvement to leading the process of creating excellent learning environments. Beginning with fundamental principles of school leadership for grades K-12, the book demonstrates how action research and published studies can work hand-in-hand to explain the nature of student achievement gaps and the reasons that underlie them. Using examples from education leadership classrooms, research, and practice, the authors bring to life the processes of problem identification and diagnosis, developing solutions, and project implementation and evaluation.

About the Author:

Scott C. Bauer (Ph.D. Cornell University) serves as Associate Professor and Program Coordinator in the Education Leadership Program at George Mason University. His research interests involve the application of organizational design and theory to the improvement of schools, and the efficacy of various strategies used to develop school leaders at all levels. His most recent publications deal with the design of distributed leadership processes in schools, the development of teacher leaders, and the redesign of school leadership preparation programs. He is involved in a federally-funded three-year study of the implementation and effectiveness of a cross-district coaching and mentoring support system for new principals. He serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of School Leadership and Journal of Research for Educational Leaders, and he is an officer for the Learning and Teaching in Educational Leadership special interest group in the American Educational Research Association (AERA).

Review:

"Hurry and get this book published. I'd like to use it in my current class. It is better than anything else I've seen. The book covers more topics than most textbooks. I like the way in includes the change process, the understanding of how to find high quality literature and research, and the understanding of the research processes. I also like the inclusion of the topic of assessing the context.--Thomas L. Alsbury
