STUDENT-CENTERED LEADERSHIP (Jossey-Bass, a Wiley Imprint; September 2011; $25.00/Paper; ISBN: 978-0-470-87413-4) offers a timely and thoughtful resource for school leaders who want to turn their ideals into action. Written by educational leadership expert Viviane Robinson, the book shows leaders how they can make a bigger difference to the quality of teaching and learning in their school and ultimately improve their students' performance.
STUDENT-CENTERED LEADERSHIP is based not on fad or fashion, but on the best available evidence about the impact of different types of leadership on student outcomes. The book includes examples of five types of leadership practice as well as rich accounts of the knowledge and skills that leaders need to employ them with confidence.
Filled with practical lessons, clear information, and much inspiration, Robinson encourages leaders to experiment with changing how they lead so they can transform their schools for the better.
