Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

`The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is an important read for school leader and system administrators, not so much because it provides a prescription of the future of public education, but more because it elevates the moral imperative of public schooling and enshrine s the view that effective school leadership must be drive from a deep moral purpose' - Journal of Educational Administration</p> <p></p> <p>`The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is sequel to what many heads consider Michael Fullan's best and most practical book, Leading in a Culture of Change. Here he follows up moral purpose, brought into sharp relief in individual schools. Without moral purpose, nothing of value is achieved. We learn how it is developed effectively and Michael Fullan makes the difficult but important case that truly moral school leadership recognizes its obligation to the wider community and other schools, an argument that those of us pushing for collegiates will welcome' - Tim Brighouse, Times Educational Supplement</p> <p></p> <p>`The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is another slim volume in a series of such texts by this powerful figure and, after a series of understandably laudatory statements by colleagues and admirers, actually commences by reflecting back on his previous text What's Worth Fighting For in the Principalship (1997).</p> <p>As one has come to expect from this eminent writer this is a highly readable, well structured and accessible text that is above all positive. Indeed I have no doubt that many will find the work inspirational' - Mark Brundett, School Leadership and Management</p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>The author examines the moral purpose of school leadership and its critical role in `changing the context' in which the role is embedded. In this bold step forward, Michael Fullan calls for principals to become agents as well as beneficiaries of the processes of school change. </p> <p>Concepts explored in depth include:</p> <p></p> <p>} why `changing the context' should be the main agenda for the principalship</p> <p>} why barriers to the principalship exist</p> <p>} why the principal should be seen as the Chief Operating Officer of a school</p> <p>} why the role of the principal should figure more prominently within the system.

Synopsis:

Foreword by John I. Goodlad

Michael Fullan examines the moral purpose of school leadership and its critical role in changing the context in which the role is embedded.

Synopsis:

Fullan shows how moral leadership can reinvent the principalship and bring about large-scale school improvement. This is a masterfully crafted and accessible book by North America's foremost expert on change.-Thomas J. Sergiovanni, Lillian Radford Professor of EducationTrinity University, San Antonio, TX

Fullan challenges all who work in education to rethink the critical role of the principal as school leader in the current era of accountability. With clarity and insight, he offers a series of strategies to reshape the culture and context of leadership in schools to create learning communities where both students and teachers can excel.-Paul D. Houston, Executive DirectorAmerican Association of School Administrators

Once again, the writing of Michael Fullan is a tour de force. The Moral Imperative of School Leadership is a must-read for those who want to make a difference -Gerald N. Tirozzi, Executive DirectorNational Association of Secondary School Principals

The time has come to change the context of school leadership

The role of the principal is pivotal to systemic school change. That is the fundamental message of The Moral Imperative of School Leadership, which extends the discussion begun in Fullan's earlier publication, What's Worth Fighting for in the Principalship? The author examines the moral purpose of school leadership and its critical role in changing the context in which the role is embedded. In this bold step forward, Fullan calls for principals to become agents as well as beneficiaries of the processes of school change. In an effort to make the position more rewarding and exciting, he shifts the principal's role from one of a site-basedsuperman or superwoman, and recasts it as one in which principals figure prominently both within their school and within the larger school system that surrounds them.

Concepts explored in-depth include: Why changing the context should be the main agenda for the principalship Why barriers to the principalship exist Why the principal should be seen as the COO (chief operating officer) of a school Why the role of the principal should figure more prominently within the system What individuals and the system can do to transform school leadership to a powerful new force

The challenge, and moral imperative, for today's principal is to lead system transformations to resolve the top-down/bottom-up dilemma that exists in systemic change. To end the exodus from the principalship, and for great school leaders to evolve in large numbers, the time to redefine the position is now See Facilitator's Guide to The Moral Imperative of School Leadership
