Educational Leadership and School Culture.
Sashkin, Marshall, Ed.; Walberg, Herbert J., Ed.
Leadership has long been a topic of discussion among school administrators. Stronger and more effective leadership is needed both in the school building and at the school district level. Researchers have only recently begun to explore school culture, leadership, and the interaction of the two. This book covers three topics: school culture, leadership, and leadership and culture. The 10 chapters and their authors are: (1) "The Culture of Schools" (Terrence E. Deal); (2) "Bureaucratic and Cultural Linkages: Implications for the Principal" (William A. Firestone and Bruce L. Wilson); (3) "Transforming School Culture" (Martin Maehr and Rachel Buck); (4) "New Sources of Leadership Authority" (Thomas J. Sergiovanni); (5) "The Visionary Principal: School Leadership for the Next Century" (Marshall Sashkin); (6) "Strategies for Building School Cultures: Principals as Symbolic Leaders" (Terrence E. Deal and Kent D. Peterson); (7) "Principals and Their School Cultures: Understandings from Quantitative and Qualitative Research" (Marshall Sashkin and Molly Goltman Sashkin); (8) "Creating a Mastery-Oriented Schoolwide Culture: A Team Leadership Perspective" (Russell Ames and Carole Ames); (9) "Visionary Superintendents and Their Districts" (Judith Endeman); and (10) "Leadership and Culture: A Quantitative Perspective on School Leadership and Instructional Climate" (Samuel E. Krug). References are included at the end of each chapter. (JPT)
