This edited text provides an international perspective on leadership and management roles and their relationship to improvement within educational institutions. The interactions of educational institutions are examined at local, national and global levels with case studies and examples being drawn from many countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. Two main themes are explored. The first is the move to site based management for educational institutions, linked to improvement. The second investigates the idea of learning for all and explores the ways in which leadership and management can contribute towards the development and enhancement of student learning, staff development and institutional growth. The authors, who are mainly drawn from the Institute of Education, University of London, make full use of the whole range of international literature relating to educational leadership, management and administration providing a textbook for masters-level students.
