about this item
What drives school leaders?What do they do on a day to day basis?What helps or constrains their decision-making?What keeps them focused amidst challenges?
Rather than applying theory to practice, Exploring School Leadership in England and the Caribbeandraws on how school leaders practice and experience their own leadership. Paul Miller draws on case studies from Jamaica and England to explore what it means to be a school leader and explores a wide-range of issues, including accountability, performativity, inclusion and multiculturalism, technology, staffing and resourcing decisions.
While no two school leaders will have identical experiences as a school leader, Paul Miller draws on the first-hand accounts of school leadership to show that regardless of school size, type and location there are a number of common experiences and themes.
