Summary
  • In the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world of education today, leaders need to take an engaged, activist, and courageous approach to help build optimistic futures for all students. Transformative Leadership in Education presents an alternative approach to leadership for deep and equitable change. Using vignettes, stories, research, and drawing on scholarship from a range of disciplines, noted scholar Carolyn M. Shields explores the concept of transformative leadership and its potential to create learning environments that are just and inclusive. Drawing on examples from transformative school leaders, Shields demonstrates that this leadership can promote academic achievement, family and community empowerment, democratic engagement, and global citizenship
  • Special features include: End-of-chapter guiding questions to help readers reflect on their own practice and to apply the concepts in their own contexts Vignettes and stories from students, teachers, and community members illustrate how transformative leadership can promote academic achievement and democratic engagement A robust companion website with extra resources, video and audio clips, and an author blog to further understanding and lead to sustained action toward the goals of transformative leadership. This exciting text will appeal to all aspiring and practicing leaders who want to prepare students to be successful, caring, and engaged citizens of the global community
