Built on a structural foundation of concepts from some of the greatest educational leaders, the book focuses on creating outstanding schools by treating leadership as a moral craft advocating imagination, creativity, and ethical integrity. Here, theory, practice, and research combine to present a sound picture of the roles and functions of today’s school leaders. Specifically, it describes where and how principals spend their time, standards that inform their behavior, and competencies they need to master in order to be effective.
