School leadership internships are the bridge between classroom teachers and first-time leadership positions. Research shows that quality internships are equally as important as the graduate programs themselves in establishing leadership practices that improve teaching, learning, and school conditions. This book was written as a stand-alone graduate textbook and serves as a guide and support for creating and managing quality school leader internship programs. It provides step-by-step guidance for interns, their supervisors, and their faculty on how to initiate an internship and evaluate interns' work. In this updated third edition, the authors have aligned the internship to the revised ISLLC standards, making this book critical for the over 500 leadership preparation programs nationwide and the thousands of school districts that support leadership candidates.

Over the last decade, the educational context for students with disabilities has significantly changed primarily as a result of mandates contained in NCLB and IDEA.

Few subjects engender more strongly held beliefs and contrary views than education. The outcomes of debates over education and educational reform impact all citizens. Media coverage of these controversies is sometimes shallow and one-sided, fostering the need to develop critical thinking skills. These skills in turn open opportunities for personal growth, joining the public debate, and helping others participate in critical discussions. The authors of Critical Issues in Education present two opposing positions for each of sixteen different hot-button issues, including multiculturalism, school finance, charter schools, teacher evaluation, cyberbullying, and gender equity. Prospective teachers will find the authors’ approach eye-opening and stimulating. Ideally, they will teach these valuable skills to their students, who will prosper academically and personally from understanding and considering diverse viewpoints.

The pressure is on. Throughout the country, educators and administrators are working hard to make sure students pass standardized tests and graduate. At the same time, teachers are overwhelmed by ever-increasing demands. Efforts at reforming schools often replicate the same approaches and net the same discouraging results. Staff at many schools feel defensive and powerless as a result of being unable to meet standards they didn’t set and don’t know how to achieve. This book describes a humanistic approach to implementing programs and systems that bring academic press, social support, and relational trust together in unique ways. Based on the understanding that old beliefs are changed by supporting new behaviors, the approach includes acquiring and using data in innovative and intentional ways. Properly conducted, the approach results in high morale, a sense of inclusiveness and success, increased efficacy, and improved metrics in all areas of education. The book includes the research and theory behind the approach, action steps for leaders, and lessons learned in the process—useful elements of success for any school.

Designed to help users analyze the processes by which decisions are made, focus on legal, ethical and career-altering issues, and sharpen their own decision-making skills, this casebook explores the problems confronting school administrators at all levels and in a variety of settings. The cases and a variety of pre- and post-case questions and activities encourage readers to examine their own assumptions, beliefs, values, and administrative style. The cases are based on situations which have confronted administrators in real settings and examine issues from several levels of administration — elementary school, middle school, high school, and the central office. Cases cover a wide, current, and varied array of problems — with an emphasis on case studies of non-dramatic, typical, and daily concerns and problems, as well as some more complex and high-profile scenarios.
