Shared Governance and Responsibility: The Keys to Leadership, Commitment and Vision in School Reform.
Ellis, Norman E.; Joslin, Anne W.
A framework to analyze leadership with a focus on the concepts of commitment and vision is developed in this paper. Four sections discuss current views of reform concepts, leadership, vision, and commitment. A conclusion is that widespread, lasting school reform requires shared leadership, a collective vision based on organizational introspection, and commitment based on applied, incremental staff participation. Linking social structure with individual motivation is crucial to effective leadership. (21 references) (LMI)
