"Excellent cogent analysis of key concepts of leadership are presented in a reader friendly style."
"Fenwick W. English returns to themes of leadership he explored in more than 20 earlier books and dozens of presentation to educator audiences. He favors "re-centering educational leadership in the humanities," rather than acting on the recommendation of the business literature, and he emphasizes the use of films as a way to humanize leadership concepts."
—THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR
"English successfully challenges the established educational community to rethink the current state of research on school leadership in the social sciences...The inclusion of theory, discourse, and stories of recognized leaders followed by chapter learning extensions that include key concepts, movie recommendations, and prompted reflective journaling makes this book a most valuable resource for the educational leadership community."
“The Art of Educational Leadership provides one of the most complete examinations of leadership that I have encountered. I admire the way it urges students to think and reflect. The format allows individual learners to focus on those materials that best fit their learning style while the numerous presentations of a single topic through the different modalities strengthens the learning. This text is a fresh, new look at leadership...”
This textbook is highly recommended for any course exploring leadership at all levels in education settings.
The layout of the book is excellent, and easy for students to guide through the content. The book provides an introduction to all the major themes in education leadership, and includes an overview of all contemporary and mainstream theoretical perspectives. A particular strength of the the book is the focus on practice, which is often missing from these types of texts.
Excellent book. Maybe not suitable as a text book for this course, although I would like to have it as a supplemental book for assignment information gathering.
