Leadership in education?

Effective education leadership makes a difference in improving learning. There’s nothing new or especially controversial about that idea. What’s far less clear, even after several decades of school renewal efforts, is just how leadership matters, how important those effects are in promoting the learning of all children, and what the essential ingredients of successful leadership are.

One thought on “Leadership in education?

  1. And what I wrote in response…

    When I read the statement I see the relationship between leadership and learning as coming down to how well the leadership is able to manage and effectively deal with the changeable nature of education itself. Be that through the changing expectations of government, the introduction of 21st century learning environments, the differing needs of students or any of the myriad of other pressures placed on educational institutions of all kinds.
