Transforming Leadership Programs: Design, Pedagogy, and Incentives
Stein, Sandra J.
Phi Delta Kappan, v87 n7 p522-524 Mar 2006
If schools of education are to remain relevant in this era of accountability, they must approach the preparation of school leaders as part of an urgent social justice agenda. At the heart of this agenda is the improvement of access to educational opportunities for all children, a goal to be accomplished through instructional leadership grounded in theories of organizational change. In this article, the author argues that in order to prepare administrators to lead schools that provide educational opportunities for all, Ed Schools need to make three critical changes. They must: (1) improve program design in partnership with practitioners; (2) revamp pedagogy; and (3) design incentives that reward faculty members for engaging in innovative program design and delivery.
