Third Millennium Leaders: Thinking and Acting both Locally and Globally
Townsend, Tony
Leadership and Policy in Schools, v8 n4 p355-379 2009
This article considers change over education's history as being a series of successive waves from when education was delivered locally to individuals to the present when we "think globally and act locally." It argues that to achieve universal student success we need to have another wave of both thinking and acting locally and globally. This shift will have implications for policy, school management, and classroom practice. To drive this, new ways of educating and supporting school leaders must ensure we not only focus on the what of leadership but also improve how leaders go about their business. (Contains 8 tables and 2 figures.)
