Paula A. Cordeiro, William G. Cunningham


Cunningham / Cordeiro, Educational Leadership: A Bridge to Improved Practice 4e (020557842X) Commonly known for providing the most comprehensive coverage of the essentials of modern school administration in a book of fewer than 400 pages, this text supports improved practice in educational administration, which in turn results in greater student learning in American schools. It is much more than an outstanding leadership theory and research text; it is also a highly usable, practical guide. This text focuses on present conditions, operations, new directions, and best practices in American schools. It successfully makes the important theory-to-practice transitions in a clearly written, readable format, with lots of hands on activities to draw students into the important content. It is a must for any one serious about becoming an educational leader for American schools. New to this edition: o The title of this text was changed to reflect its increased emphasis on relevancy and practicality to the contemporary practice of educational leadership Though many have accused educational leadership programs as building bridges to nowhere, this book delivers a bridge to improved practice.. o Greater stress has been placed on the duties and responsibilities of the principal and the text is also focused even more on responsibilities at the school level. o There is expanded coverage of distributed leadership. There is growing interest in increasing the number of individuals who are involved in leadership within the school. This text provides significantly increased coverage of this very popular and successful trend. Here s what your colleagues are saying: It provides an excellent foundation for students in the initial stage of preparing for school leadership. My students have been particularly complimentary of the text, indicating that it would remain part of their personal libraries. - Dr. Carol Parham, University of Maryland The book is comprehensive and thorough in the presentation of topics in educational administration. The problem-based activities are an excellent addition. - Dr. Denise P. Dunbar, Tennessee State UniversityPaula A.
