School leadership and management are fundamental components of school improvement. This is the first study of its kind to relate the principles of effective leadership to the broad spectrum of school life in Ireland.

A key resource for school leaders in their personal and professional study, Leadership and Management in Schools critically appraises issues in leading and managing schools. The editors bring together an array of renowned scholars to inform and stimulate the debate on the future of leadership development in Irish schools.

Each author explores different perspectives and sets a framework for rethinking school leadership and management and an agenda for future research. The book includes in-depth discussions of a broad spectrum of issues encountered by practitioners, such as justice and equality as cornerstones of any educational system, principles of good governance, and the key positions of accountability and leadership of change.

Inspiring and informative in its style, the authors bring together a range of perspectives on every aspect of school leadership and management, from well known contributors such as Michael Fullan, Ciaran Sugrue and Marty Linsky, creating a unique and rich canvas. Focusing on national and international perspectives this book adds to the growing canon of international studies of school leadership.

Review:

'In this text schools are invited not just to search for best practice but to try to invent next practice, to distinguish what is essential from what is expendable and to practice interdependence not just autonomy...The real strength of this text, however, is to be found not in the higher reaches of public policy formation but in the inner sanctum of the school as a 'professional learning community'. It is part road map and part a call to action...The paradigm shift commended in this book as regards school leadership is a breath of fresh air. It is about more than running effective organisations. It suggests a means to create collaborative communities' -
Pat Cox, President of The European Movement International and government advisor
