    Foreword

    There are many books on educational leadership and management. These range from guides intended for practitioners to theoretical texts aimed primarily at academics and research students. Carol Cardno's new book bridges this divide by stressing both the concepts underpinning practice and the need for school leaders to acquire a specific set of leadership skills to carry out their activities successfully. She argues that theory is demanding but essential in resolving complex problems.

    The chapters in this book weave together several central strands of educational leadership and management. She begins by tackling the semantics of the field and the meanings given to three overlapping terms; educational administration, educational management and educational leadership, which collectively define the field. She rightly focuses on the leadership of teaching and learning, which is widely regarded as the most important task facing school principals. She links this to notions of organisational learning. Schools ought to be the ultimate learning organisations, as that is their central purpose, but achieving this is not straightforward, as Carol shows in this part of her book. Subsequent chapters address issues of managing dilemmas through dialogue, performance management, collaborative decision-making and teamwork. The final chapter brings these ideas together in a powerful discussion of strategic leadership and management. She argues that school-level strategy is inevitably constrained by the policies prescribed by governments but it is also true that leaders often fail to exploit the discretion which is available to them. Interpreting, and not simply implementing, government policy is essential if school principals are to be leaders and not simply administrators of central policy.

    Carol draws on her extensive experience, as a school principal and a professor, to bring together theory and practice in a novel way. She eschews esoteric theory, intended only for academic debate, and focuses on showing how concepts can illuminate practice and lead to better outcomes for all who work within, or care about, educational organisations.
