Transformative Leadership in Education free pdf Noted scholar Carolyn Shields argues that something is missing amidst the proliferation of new collaborative leadership theories, of professional learning communities, and stronger standards and accountability measures. In the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world (VUCA) of education today, leaders need to take an engaged, activist, and courageous approach to help build optimistic and hopeful futures for all students. Transformative Leadership in Education presents an alternative approach to leadership for deep and equitable change. Rather than just another new theory, Transformative Leadership is a substantively different, holistic, and integrated approach that unifies ways of thinking about ethics, vision, goals, purposes of schooling and processes of leadership. Drawing on examples from transformative school leaders, this book explores transformative leadership and its potential for deep and equitable change is revealed. Special Features Include: End-of-chapter guiding questions to help readers reflect on their own practice and to think about applying the concepts in their own contexts Illustrative cases and vignettes A robust companion website with extra resources, teaching activities, and video clips of interviews with teachers, refugee students, and homeless students This exciting text will appeal to leaders who want to be thoughtful, inclusive, and socially just and want to prepare students who will be successful, caring, and engaged citizens of the global community.
