The wider socio-political environment within any country provides the forum for the ideological and philosophical debates from which the organization of education is derived. Educational policies therefore reflect the dominant discourses of the time, from which overarching guiding principles are formulated. In this new four-volume collection, esteemed editors Leslie Bell and Howard Stevenson bring together a wealth of material which discusses these dominant discourses and the strategic directions which emanate from them, looking at areas such as key ideological debates, policy issues, organizational theories and culture, leadership theories and critical perspectives, and managing teaching and learning. The set is carefully organized into four thematic volumes: Volume One: Organizing Educational Policy Volume Two: Organizing Educational Institutions Volume Three: Organizing Educational Leadership and Management Volume Four: Organizing Performance, Professionalism and Pedagogy in Education
