Practical and highly applicable, the third edition of A Casebook for School Leaders offers those pursuing a career in educational administration the opportunity learn a uniform framework for analyzing and resolving a large variety of school cases. This book examines 44 cases that represent real-life situations in today's schools, with issues and topics ranging from the separation of church and state, personal leadership development, the No Child Left Behind Act, fundraising, and leadership attributes. Each case is fully explored keeping in mind the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards and how these standards can be applied effectively in practice. The book also includes an ISLLC matrix on the inside cover that correlates the subject matter covered in each case with the ISLLC standards. The revised third edition includes a new end-of-chapter activity called "Developing Your Leadership Expertise," which provides readers with the opportunity to practice applying what they've just read to the ISLLC standards; five new cases that address issues not covered in previous editions; and a revised "Questions to Research and Consider" feature, which now includes higher-order thinking questions and inquiry-based activities.
