This fifth edition of Tony Bush's bestselling text explores the links between educational management theories and the main models of leadership, and their application to policy and practice globally across varied educational contexts.
This fully updated new edition is informed by an enhanced global perspective and expanded coverage of important contemporary issues including teacher leadership, professional learning communities, transformational leadership, instructional leadership and a critical assessment of distributed leadership.
