Leadership for Quality and Accountability in Education. Leadership for Learning Series
Brundrett, Mark; Rhodes, Christopher
Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group
"Leadership for Quality and Accountability in Education" addresses the interconnected issues of quality and accountability in the education system and provides a coherent framework within which these issues can be analysed. The authors outline the significance of promoting quality in all educational establishments and go on to discuss "why" quality and accountability have become so essential to the framework of leadership in education, "how" quality and accountability have been utilised on a national and international scale and "what" the defining characteristics of these terms are. The book is divided into three sections which explore three linked key aspects: (1) Part I focuses on the concept and nature of quality and accountability and the process of developing a culture of quality; (2) Part II addresses the issues of managing staff and resources, leadership for high-quality teaching and learning and relationships with stakeholders; and (3) Part III considers the impact and prospect of quality and accountability, including internal evaluation and external inspection. The book will appeal to educational leaders and managers, advisors and inspectors, and academic researchers. It will also be of particular relevance to Masters and doctoral degree students specialising in school leadership and management.
