Educational Leadership is the official journal of the ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development), formed out of a merger in March 1943 of the Department of Supervision and Directors of Instruction of the National Education Association (NEA) and the Society for Curriculum Study to become the Department of Supervision and Curriculum Development of NEA, which changed its name to ASCD in 1946 and became an independent organization.

In October 1943 this new department established Educational Leadership as its journal. The publication committee consisted of the representatives from the public schools, education professors from a variety of universities, and the president of the Department of Supervision and Curriculum Development. The first editor was Ruth Cunningham, executive secretary of the Department of Supervision and Curriculum Development.
