Decision Making in Educational Leadership

Stephanie Chitpin, Colin W. Evers (Eds.). Decision Making in Educational Leadership: Principles, Policies and Practices. Routledge. 2014. Pages: 232

The increased focus on raising standards in education requires leaders to engage in complex decision making about teacher assessment, mandated accountability measures, and the collection and use of large amounts of data. Showcasing exemplary practices of school and district administrators, Decision Making in Educational Leadership covers issues concerning the role of emotion, ethical and legal ramifications, the use of data, and complexity in decision making. Authors explore what administrators and school leaders actually know about educational problems, how they draw upon and revise theories of action for responding to problems, and which theories are tenable in educational decision making.
