Authors:Eacott, ScottPublication Information:Rotterdam : Sense Publishers. 2015Resource Type:eBook.Description:Educational leadership, management and administration has a rich history of epistemological and ontological dialogue and debate. However in recent times, at least since the publication of Colin Evers and Gabriele Lakomski’s trilogy â knowing, exploring and doing educationaladministration â there has been a distinct dearth. Educational Leadership Relationally explicitly returns matters of epistemology and ontology to the centre of the discussion. Through a sustained and rigorous engagement with contemporary thought and analysis, Scott Eacott articulates and defends a relational approach to scholarship in educationalleadership, management and administration. Eacott belongs to a group of scholars in educationaladministration who could be called meta-sociologist. This group blends sociology, historical revisionism, managerial theories and general philosophy to emphasise the relevance of sociological analysis in the field of educational administration. Proposing a relational turn, Eacott outlines a methodological agenda for constructing an alternative approach to educationalleadership, management and administration scholarship that might be persuasive beyond the critical frontier. The relational research programme is arguably the most ambitious agenda in educational leadership, management and administration coming out of Australia since Colin Evers and Gabriele Lakomski’s natural coherentism and Richard Bates’Critical Theory of Educational Administration. As a research agenda, it engages with: the centrality of administration in constructions of the social world; the legitimation of popular labels such as âleadership‘; the inexhaustible and inseparable grounding of administrative labour in time and space; and overcomes contemporary tensions of individualism/collectivism and structure/agency to provide a productive â rather than merely critical â space to theorise educational leadership, management and administration.Subjects:Educational leadershipCategories:EDUCATION / Administration / GeneralEDUCATION / Organizations & InstitutionsRelated ISBNs:9789462099098. 9789462099111.OCLC:900780573Accession Number:970754Article #2Authors:Norton, M. ScottPublication Information:Lanham, Maryland : Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. 2015Resource Type:eBook.Description:The primary focus of the book is to emphasize the major changes in the leadershipresponsibilities of the school principal and to underscore the necessity for them to gain new knowledge and skills in order to direct their leadership toward meeting the new changes in school-community goals and objectives. M. Scott Norton emphasizes the fact that contemporary issues and problems must be viewed as symptoms of change. The symptoms represent administrative tasks that must be attacked by implementing the primary reason that the school principal is hired, that of leading on-going change. The leader’s responsibility focuses on school purposes as set forth in a viable school mission statement. The school‘s mission statement, that all too often is set forth as a public relations perspective, must instead set forth answers to questions such as, âWhat is our purpose?â âWhy does our school exist?â âWhat is our reason for being here?â âHow do we meet the on-going changes that face us educationally?â The leadership of the school principal âattacksâ the symptoms of change by collaborating with the school‘s faculty to set forth a mission to which all members can commit. Collaboration infers a unification of members’commitments toward the primary purposes of the school. Collaboration and opportunities to confer on an on-going basis are established. Although the school principal’s hands are often tied by such factors as lack of resources, underfunded/unfunded mandates, inability to hire and retain highly qualified personnel and constantly changing program requirements related to student testing and teacher performance evaluation, this book places emphasis on the principal’s need to become a visionary change agent in order to âattackâ the ever changing symptoms of educational change.Subjects:School principals–United StatesEducational leadership–United StatesSchool management and organization–United StatesCategories:EDUCATION / LeadershipEDUCATION / GeneralEDUCATION / Administration / School Superintendents & PrincipalsRelated ISBNs:9781475822465. 9781475822472. 9781475822489.OCLC:932480103Accession Number:1122229#3Authors:Jenlink, Patrick M.Publication Information:Lanham : R&L Education. 2014Resource Type:eBook.Description:What makes a moral person moral? Who decides what morality means? What makes leadership practice moral? In today’s schools, what stands as moral leadership? These are questions that reflect the complexity integral to the calculus of human morality, especially in a world that is defined daily by its variant meanings of morality, its acts of immorality. The schoolas an educational setting is or should be a decidedly moral center of the society; it is the natural intersect between the family and the multi-dimensional nature of public life. Educational Leadership and Moral Literacy addresses these questions, situating the reader in a conversation that examines the meaning and nature of moral leadership through the lens of moral literacy and the dispositional aims of moral leadership in educational settings. The contributing authors extend an argument that the work of leader educators and practitioners alike must continuously be re-articulated around the dispositional aims aligned with a moral, democratic education. Educators must be concerned with developing the moral, intellectual, and aesthetic dimensions of the educational leader as a âmoral person.âSubjects:Educational leaders–Professional ethicsEducational leadership–Moral and ethical aspectsCategories:EDUCATION / LeadershipEDUCATION / Administration / GeneralRelated ISBNs:9781610487269. 9781610487276. 9781610487283.OCLC:874563080Accession Number:735000#4Authors:Riley, Kathryn A.Publication Information:London : Bloomsbury Academic. 2017Resource Type:eBook.Description:Place, Belonging and School Leadership offers research findings, analysis and accessible tools for further research inquiry that are designed to contribute to the development of professional learning communities.
