The Importance of School Culture for Instructional Leadership
Jones, Leslie
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n4 Oct-Dec 2009
One of the most popular themes (Reoccurring issues) for K-12 school leaders, central office leaders, professors of Educational Leadership, other educators, and other pertinent stakeholders in education is what are the important characteristics needed for school leaders to be effective. In 2000, Rakiz and Swason noted that leadership was in a period of dynamic change. The skills required for leadership are very different from one era to the next (Sorenson & Machell,1996). McEwan (2002) suggested that providing a definition of leadership is not a problem; the real challenge is determining how to create and produce effective leaders. Bennis (1989) suggested that it is difficult to conceptualize effective leadership but it is like beauty; "you know it when you see it."
