The mission of educational leadership seems to have shifted from culture growth to standardized testing. This book suggests that the time has come for educational leaders to re-evaluate their mission and redirect their schools to a broader curriculum emphasizing the moral nature of learning. The author also suggests activities that can encourage leaders to change their methods. Leadership requirements, principles, characteristics, skills, climate and performance standards are set out in six chapters, two appendices provide additional information, and a third lists web resources available through the Internet. A glossary, notes, bibliography, and index complete the work.
