This book addresses these challenges and demonstrates a variety of illustrative examples of how successful these changes can be. This is a useful primer for those studying leadership in schools and some of the associated theories and practice . There are wide and well-considered references across the educational and management lendscape and it provides thought-provoking views on how leadership can be practised'-ESCalate 'The fact that we know you are watching, Brian, helps all of us both to perform well in the present and to invent a future in which we perform better still...I commend Brian's writings to anyone committed to world-class public education' - Professor Sir Michael Barber, Expert Partner, Global Public Sector Practice, McKinsey and Company, Former Head of Prime Minister's Delivery Unit at 10 Downing Street 'In Re-imagining Educational Leadership Brian Caldwell has set an understanding framework for school leaders and educators to fundamentally rethink schools and school leadership. The book is very perceptive and links ideas and concepts to the practical reality of schools in an inspiring and imaginative way. This is a 'must read' book for all those involved in developing inspiring leadership in our schools. This is a major contribution to the educational literature' - Professor Brent Davies, Professor of International Leadership Development at the University of Hull 'Brian Caldwell has successfully brought together an analysis of past and current practice in leadership but, most significantly, he has outlined key thoughts, ideas and perspectives to inspire leaders in their personal learning journey in the future... This book will become one of the key sources of ideas for leadership in schools over the next few years. It is both accessible and thought provoking while never losing the practical relevance to schools and school leaders. This is a "must read" for all those involved in educational leadership and 21st century schooling' - International Journal of Educational Management 'Brian Caldwell moves the conversation from merely diagnosing the shortcomings of our schools. Instead, he moves on to a profoundly new and constructive vision of a new educational future. This rich volume both illuminates the goal and lights the path with concrete proposals and informative insights drawn from his international efforts to transform educational practice. This book will stir the passions of everyone who believes in learning' - Shoshana Zuboff, Charles Edward Wilson Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
