A practical book which, through case study, exercises and engages the reader in a close examination of their own personal assumptions, practices and experiences of school life. The book takes a good look at the assumptions that prevail in different schools and circumstances and shows how the desire to improve will often need to be met by an equal desire to change and expand horizons. The initiatives suggested show how change can be handled to minimise fears and reservations.

More than ever, schools are regarded as a learning community in which its leaders, and therefore the school's primary agents of change, are expected to stay abreast of the latest developments in education and instruction. This book provides important insights for improving professional development activities, school-university partnerships and networks, educational management, as well as teaching and learning in schools and colleges. It builds on research conducted in the 1990s, during which the pursuit of school improvement and skill development first converged.

This is an account of how a principal combines the rational and emotional components of leadership to lead the transformation of a school. Most attempts at reform come from the outside, with people wishing to impose a curriculum and benchmarks; this book assumes that schools can transform themselves, but only when those involved in schools (especially principals) develop self-respect and achieve self-actualization. The author believes, and has demonstrated in his colleges, that a sensitive, thoughtful, proactive leadership might yet deliver the quality outcomes that the community desires from schooling.
