Education Leadership in a Culture of Compliance
Abbate, Fred J.
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n6 p35-37 Mar 2010
Leadership in education is much like leadership in business and government. Three problems in particular make education seem different, including the almost constant pressure, the politics of the job, and state and federal regulations. But these are similar to problems faced by leaders in other organizations. However, education leaders must take care that blind adherence to the regulations does not erode genuine leadership and interfere with providing an excellent education to students.
