Demands for School Leaders
Bradley-Levine, Jill
International Journal of Teacher Leadership, v7 n2 p28-44 Fall 2016
This article examines the ways that graduate courses in teacher leadership influenced the ways that teachers described the nature of leadership and their role as educational leaders. Using Foster's (1989) four demands for school leaders as a theoretical framework, participants' perceptions are examined to determine how teachers synthesized their learning in the graduate courses they took with their work in schools. The findings suggest the importance of purposefully designed teacher leader preparation, as well as school contexts and cultures that support teacher leaders' practice of critical, transformative, educative, and ethical leadership (Foster, 1989).
