Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


A 2007 report by Linda Darling-Hammond and colleagues at Stanford University found that exemplary pre-and in-service development programs for principals have a set of common components, including a comprehensive and coherent curriculum aligned to state and professional standards. Similarly, Ken Leithwood, Karen Seashore Louis, Stephen Anderson, and Kyla Wahlstrom (2004) noted three core system elements that determine the quality of school leadership-standards, training, and context/conditions. This volume is a resource for developing principals in Standard 2 Instructional Leader - ship with particular attention to the broader conditions that sur round principals’ work today and into the future. In so doing, this volume goes beyond traditional managerial paradigms used to prepare instructional leadership to consider the personal and sociocultural and political aspects of today’s leadership work. Standard 2 and its specific functions are identified below. Each function is fully described in subsequent chapters.
