Theories of Educational Leadership and Management

Synopsis

Theories of Educational Leadership and Management by Tony Bush

In this established text Tony Bush presents the major theories of educational management, and links them to contemporary policy and practice. Leadership continues to be one of the major criteria used to differentiate the models; but the author now makes clear links between educational management theories and the main models of leadership. The author applies the models to a range of international contexts, including both developed and developing countries. This relates to global interest in concepts of leadership and management and to an increasing recognition of the need to customize theory and practice to each context and culture rather than adopting a `one size fits all' approach. For the Fourth Edition, the essential conceptual models remain. New case study material has been added from the full range of education and non-school settings, from early years through to further and higher education. Each chapter now includes key words, summary and end of chapter materials including issues for discussion. Key terms are defined in-text for the non-expert reader and all references and relevant key legislation details have been fully updated. This book is essential reading for all teachers who aspire to management, as well as for experienced leaders on Masters' level courses, and for those studying school management as part of education studies degrees.

Reviews

'Much has changed in educational leadership and management since the first edition appeared in 1986. Preparation for leadership in schools, colleges, and universities has radically changed in many parts of the world during these decades. Throughout this period, the editions of Tony Bush's book have remained a significant resource for scholars, students and practitioners, reflecting both continuities and evolution in leadership and management theory. This latest edition provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the range of relevant theory and ways of thinking about the interplay of different theories. It is a foundational text for all those interested in how educational leadership and management can be understood and developed' - Professor Jacky Lumby, University of Southampton

'At a time when education is about instrumental delivery and can do

enthusiasm for reforms, it is heartening to see that a book about

theory and theorising is in its fourth edition. Tony Bush's focus on

helping the field to describe and understand practice is helpful and

crucial for professional learning and development' - Professor Helen M Gunter University of Manchester'
