`It should be essential reading at the National College for School Leadership' - Michael Duffy, Times Educational Supplement, Friday Magazine
`This book continues Michael Bottery's principled and persuasive assault on the application by policymakers of fashionable, shallow and decontextualised solutions (in this case leadership) to fundamental problems and issues in the definition, design and purposes of education. It is distinguished by its embeddedness in wider social science ideas and debates, enabling the challenges that schools and teachers face to be set in context, and by its sharp assessment of the impact of decades of the erosion of trust and meaning on educational work' - Jenny Ozga, Professor of Educational Research, Centre for Educational Sociology, University of Edinburgh
In this book Mike Bottery presents critical issues about the purposes of educational leadership.
He examines how `official' concepts of leadership are driven by demands which are not always to the educational, political, or social benefit of practitioners.
This book will help educational leaders and aspiring educational leaders to examine their own values and practice.
