Educational Management in Managerialist Times
This closely argued and lively polemic is recommended for all policymakers and practitioners concerned with educational leadership and change BJET Thrupp and Willmott have produced a very important book regarding knowledge claims around issues of policy and practice.... I will be recommending my masters and doctoral students to read the book so that as practitioners they may relish the opportunity to engage with issues of knowledge production. Thrupp and Willmott's book is directly relevant to every day practice in teaching and learning across the educational system, and it should be required reading for all training programmes because it enables trainees to know and understand the knowledge structures that are being used to control their work and identities. BJES ... will stir a lot of debate and be seminal to debates about the direction of education management for some time to come. Mike Bottery, Hull University ...a genuinely readable and accessible book that critically engages with school management literature. InService Education JournalThis important and provocative book is not another 'how to' educational management text. Instead it offers a critical review of the extensive educational management literature itself. The main concern of the authors is that educational management texts do not do enough to encourage school leaders and teachers to challenge social inequality or the market and managerial reforms of the last decade. They demonstrate this problem through detailed analyses of texts in the areas of educational marketing, school improvement, development planning and strategic human resource management, school leadership and school change. For academics and students, Education Management in Managerialist Times offers a critical guide to existing educational management texts and makes a strong case for redefining educational management along more socially and politically informed lines. The book also offers practitioners alternative management strategies intended to contest, rather than support, managerialism, while being realistic about the context within which those who lead and manage schools currently have to work. This controversial new title brings a new insight to the educational management debate.

Facilitating Problem-based Learning
The book is written in a lively, engaging, conversational style, without compromising on empirical rigour to substantiate its claims. ...All practitioners of problem based learning will benefit from the multipronged perspectives on pbl facilitation contained here. British Journal of Educational TechnologyInterest in problem-based learning continues to flourish worldwide. To date there has been relatively little to help staff to examine the complex issues relating to facilitating the implementation of problem-based learning and the ongoing development of staff, students and the curriculum. This book explores a broad range of issues about facilitation, in particular: understandings of facilitation that have emerged from the author's recent research and ways of equipping and supporting staff in terrestrial and virtual contexts. It also questions how students are assessed and suggests ways of preventing plagiarism in problem-based learning. It examines what it might mean to be an effective facilitator and suggests ways of designing problem-based curricula that enhance learning.

Educational Leadership: A Critical Pragmatic Perspective
Underlying the controversy surrounding educational reform and the crisis facing American public education today is the question of leadership: Who is to exercise it and what direction should it take? In his systematic redefinition of educational leadership, Spencer J. Maxcy develops a democratic, participatory model of leadership at all levels. Drawing on the work of philosophers from John Dewey and William James to contemporary neo-pragmatists, he explores the nature of shared leadership and its potential to foster socio-cultural reform through schooling. Maxcy begins with a review of leadership theory and the ways in which competing theories continue to affect education. New directions in research are assessed, particularly the shift away from treating educational leadership as a form of management rather than a relational phenomenon. In examining the implications of a philosophy of democratic leadership, the author takes his inquiry into practical areas, including the empowerment of teachers, the sharing of leadership among teachers and administrators, the preparation of educational leaders for a postmodern era, and the development of leadership qualities in children. The current trend toward decentralization of schooling is discussed in light of his proposed model, together with the demand for moral vision in education and the need for creativity as an integral part of the educational process. Making a convincing case for the distribution of leadership among the administration, teachers, students, and the larger community, this book will be of interest to anyone concerned with critical issues in education--from policy-makers and educators to the informed general reader.
