Leadership and Innovation in a Special Education School
Morris, Nancy
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v33 p56-69 Oct 2021
This qualitative case study explored ways innovation is practiced in a PK-12 special education school, including the antecedents and outcomes to innovation, and how innovation was supported. Findings concluded that specific elements within the school's staff, leadership, and environment fostered high levels of innovative practice. Individual's intrinsic motivation, openness to change, and way they approached challenges led to more innovative practices. Leaders who demonstrated transformational and servant leadership promoted innovative practices within the special education school. Implications for practice across special education is discussed, as well as how findings can be applied to the general education environment.
