Beyond Garbage Cans: An Analysis of Theory and Research in Educational Leadership and Recommendations for the Future.
This article presents a survey of the state-of-the-art in leadership theory and research in educational administration. First, it reviews major issues in educational leadership: defining the concept, building a knowledge base, choosing methodologies and analytical approachers, and training educational leaders. Second, it treats theory in educational leadership by focusing on general considerations, by surveying recent studies of educational leadership (1980-91), and by discussing some important recent international perspectives. Third, it treats research in educational leadership by again looking at general considerations, by surveying the same recent studies of educational leadership, and by outlining some important recent international research initiatives. Fourth, it lists emergent trends in educational leadership research. Finally, it presents possible directions for future research. (Author)
