Additional Information

Book Details


'It should be essential reading at the National College for School Leadership' - Michael Duffy, Times Educational Supplement. 'This book continues Michael Bottery's principled and persuasive assault on the application by policy makers of fashionable, shallow and decontextualized solutions (in this case leadership) to fundamental problems and issues in the definition, design and purposes of education' -. Jenny Ozga, Professor of Educational Research, Centre for Educational Sociology University of Edinburgh. In this book, the author presents critical issues about the purposes of educational leadership. He examines how 'official' concepts of leadership are driven by demands which are not always to the educational, political or social benefit of practitioners.
