Educational Leadership in Action A Casebook for Aspiring Educational Leaders by Leila (Kean University, USA) Sadeghi

Educational Leadership in Action provides 24 complex, real-life, accessible cases to provoke and stimulate conversation around practical problems that confront educational leaders today. Written by a diverse group of educators, these cases cover a wide range of topics, including: teacher evaluations, educational reforms, contract negotiations, school safety, cultural differences, undocumented students, and social media. To foster additional meaningful discussion and debate, this resource includes responses to each of the cases, written by a range of experts. The organization and unique approach of Educational Leadership in Action allows for flexible use in courses for aspiring leaders to supplement core readings, reinforce central concepts, exemplify theory, and provide grounded examples to encourage learning. This essential compendium of cases and responses prepares future leaders to frame problems, identify solutions, and develop strategies to meet the multiple challenges and competing demands in rapidly changing education contexts.


Educational Leadership in Action leads the reader to the crossroads of theory and practice within the context of school leadership in contemporary America. The case study approach offers real-life situations for both current and aspiring leaders to ponder. It is teaching and storytelling about 'the head, the hand and the heart
of school leadership at its best.
