`Leadership in Education offers an excellent analysis of the current debate: well informed on research and practice, positive but critical. It is particularly strong on what it calls "the railway-bookstall offerings of context-independent leadership"…. There is a great deal of practical wisdom within these very accessible pages' - Michael Duffy, Times Educational Supplement
`If one were on a fact-finding mission to gain insight into leadership thought and practice in education, then this book is an excellent resource' - Education News
