International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n3 Jul-Sep 2009
Educational administrative practitioners evaluate theories, implement practices, and refine leadership strategies daily. The exploration of the leadership gap between theory and praxis is a quantum undertaking. Leadership from the educational perspective takes many forms and presents many challenges. This document examines leadership from several diverse perspectives in the following essays: (1) Leadership: A Practitioner's Bridge from Theory to Practice (Foreword); (2) Emotional Intelligence and Effective Leadership: Implications for School Leaders; (3) Leading in Rural Appalachia; (4) Spiritual and Ethical Leadership; (5) Synergistic Leadership Theory; (6) Transformational Leadership and Servant Leadership: Is There a Difference?; (7) Leading from Below the Surface: A Non-Traditional Approach to School Leadership; and (8) Technology in Leadership. This collection of essays is authored by Virginia Tech Doctoral students as part of their requirements for the course, Theories of Educational Administration, Summer 2009. The authors posit that much of the "formal and traditional" theory is not especially applicable in today's complex and fast-paced school environments. Individual chapters contain references.
