Who Runs Our Schools? The Changing Face of Educational Leadership.
A changing mix of forces and actors occupy the educational leadership stage. The fragmentation and curious distribution of decision-making power frustrate the workings of the education system. Twelve articles discuss the nature of the leadership problem: (1) "Education's Unknown Leaders"; (2) "Tribunes for the Schools"; (3) "Few Perks, Little Respect"; (4) "The Working Environment"; (5) "Gurus and Gatekeepers"; (6) "Leadership by Commission"; (7) "The Training Jumble"; (8) "The Teaching Imperative"; (9) "The Inadequate Incubators of Leadership"; (10) "Changing the Mix"; (11) "Three Ticking Time Bombs"; and (12) "A Dozen Propositions." Interspersed throughout the collection are seven profiles of a cross-section of the nation's top educators: Bill Clinton, Ronald A. Wolk, Richard R. Green, Marc S. Tucker, Mary Hatwood Futrell, Terrel H. Bell, and Joe Clark. (66 references) (SI)
