Educational Leadership: Culture and Diversity
`A highly recommendable and powerful work...I have found this book to be both a revelatory mirror on past events and an inviting window to future prospects. I am certain that it will be of equal or greater value to all those involved and interested in the tangled complexities, and inherent rewards, of educational leadership, particularly within international or cross-cultural contexts' - Daniel H. Jarvis, International Review of Education `Clive Dimmock and Allan Walker's books is a valuable addition to the overcrowded literature on leadership. This is a useful and important book because citizenship, globalization and the tensions with nationality should be the concern of all who lead any school; even monofaith, monoethic and monolingual schools' - Tim Brighouse, TES Friday 'The authors offer a rigorous and systematic analysis based on careful definition, illustration and discussion which demonstrates the importance of understanding culture, leadership and their interaction in different contexts: in doing so they provide a powerful antidote to the simplistic export of ideas and lay foundations for a more sophisticated conceptual framework for the study of educational leadership' - John West-Burnham, International Leadership Centre, University of Hull This key text in educational leadership focuses on the significance of the context and culture of schools. The book addresses the growing recognition of cultural differences between societies and the resultant differences in schooling. It also deals with vital issues relating to multicultural education and the leadership of multicultural schools. Drawing on their first-hand experience, the authors explore the differences evident in classroom teaching and learning, as well as organizational, leadership and management aspects of schools. They show how such differences can make over-reliance on Anglo-American approaches misleading, ineffective and restrictive. Key features of the book include: - a methodology to support the emerging field of international and comparative educational leadership and management - in-depth comparative analysis of Anglo-American and Asian schooling and educational management - the leadership of multi-cultural schools This book is essential reading for professionals and students of educational leadership and management, as well as administrators.

The Moral Imperative of School Leadership
`The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is an important read for school leader and system administrators, not so much because it provides a prescription of the future of public education, but more because it elevates the moral imperative of public schooling and enshrine s the view that effective school leadership must be drive from a deep moral purpose' - Journal of Educational Administration `The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is sequel to what many heads consider Michael Fullan's best and most practical book, Leading in a Culture of Change. Here he follows up moral purpose, brought into sharp relief in individual schools. Without moral purpose, nothing of value is achieved. We learn how it is developed effectively and Michael Fullan makes the difficult but important case that truly moral school leadership recognizes its obligation to the wider community and other schools, an argument that those of us pushing for collegiates will welcome' - Tim Brighouse, Times Educational Supplement `The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is another slim volume in a series of such texts by this powerful figure and, after a series of understandably laudatory statements by colleagues and admirers, actually commences by reflecting back on his previous text What's Worth Fighting For in the Principalship (1997). As one has come to expect from this eminent writer this is a highly readable, well structured and accessible text that is above all positive. Indeed I have no doubt that many will find the work inspirational' - Mark Brundett, School Leadership and Management The author examines the moral purpose of school leadership and its critical role in `changing the context' in which the role is embedded. In this bold step forward, Michael Fullan calls for principals to become agents as well as beneficiaries of the processes of school change. Concepts explored in depth include: } why `changing the context' should be the main agenda for the principalship } why barriers to the principalship exist } why the principal should be seen as the Chief Operating Officer of a school } why the role of the principal should figure more prominently within the system.
