Theories of Educational Leadership and Management. Third Edition
Bush, Tony
SAGE Publications (CA)
In this established bestselling text, Tony Bush presents the major theories of educational management and links them to contemporary policy and practice. This fully revised Third Edition includes two important changes in content. First, the book takes account of the increasing interest in the concept of leadership. Leadership continues to be one of the major criteria used to differentiate the models but there are now explicit links between educational management theories and the main models of leadership. The second change is that, in this edition, the author applies the models to a range of international contexts, including both developed and developing countries. This change relates to global interest in concepts of leadership and management and to an increasing recognition of the need to customize theory and practice to each context and culture rather that adopting a "one size fits all" approach. This text is essential reading for students of educational leadership and management as well as for headteachers and managers in education. The book contains the following chapters: (1) The Importance of Leadership and Management for Education; (2) Models of Educational Leadership and Management; (3) Formal Models; (4) Collegial Models; (5) Political Models; (6) Subjective Models; (7) Ambiguity Models; and (8) Cultural Models.
