Framed by real stories and grounded in research, the third edition of Transformative Leadership in Education presents an alternative approach to leadership that is engaged, active, and courageous. Noted scholar Carolyn M. Shields once again explores the concept of transformative leadership theory and its potential to create learning environments that are inclusive, excellent, equitable, and socially just, as required by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4, even in the face of the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world of education today. Chapters combine contemporary research findings with stories of schools, leaders, students, teachers, and community members to demonstrate that transformative leadership can promote academic achievement, family and community empowerment, democratic engagement, and global citizenship. This exciting text will appeal to all aspiring and practicing leaders who want to create organizations that are equitable, inclusive, and excellent and that prepare students to be successful, caring, and engaged citizens of the global community.

New in this edition:

  • Discussion of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4: “to ensure inclusive, equitable and quality education and lifelong learning for all.”
  • Updated end-of-chapter guiding questions to help readers reflect on their own practice and to apply the concepts in their own contexts.
  • Enriched discussion of the interrelationships among the eight tenets of transformative leadership and leading for social justice, with a separate chapter for each tenet.
  • Elaborated discussion of the need for reflection, grounding, and action on the part of transformative leaders.
  • Updated and expanded discussion of current topics such as refugees, transgender students, and historical roots of concepts like Islamophobia and anti-Semitism.
  • A survey to identify leadership beliefs and actions about equity and inclusion.

The shipping was just superior

The shipping was just superior; not even one of the books was in contact with the shipping box -anywhere-, not even a corner or the bottom, so all the books arrived in perfect condition. The international shipping took around 2 weeks, so pretty great too.

Found a hard to get book…

Finding a hard to get book on Booksplease and with it not being an over inflated price was great. Ordering was really easy with updates on despatch. The book was packaged well and in great condition. I will certainly use them again.
