Leadership for Quality and Accountability in Education
Olayiwola, Shina
School Leadership & Management, v32 n4 p397-399 2012
The author reviews a book entitled "Leadership for quality and accountability in education" written by Mark Brundrett and Christopher Rhodes. In the book, Mark Brundrett and Christopher Rhodes explain, "the role of leadership and its direct relationship with quality and accountability in enhancing learning outcomes". The book's ultimate goal, "is to provide a coherent framework within which notions of quality and accountability can be analysed and subjected to rigorous scrutiny" with a bias towards UK primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities. To attain this goal, the authors consider the process, themes and impact in quality and accountability in education in three parts using mostly research reports. Brundrett and Rhodes note that if school leaders possess the requirements to operate within external quality frameworks, then such possession can lead to significant improvements in learning and teaching processes and outcomes.
